Tom’s Flesh

Directed by Jane Wagner, Tom di Maria
9 mins

Exploring body image, self-perception, eating disorders, and plastic surgery, the 1994 short film Tom’s Flesh is informed by the intersection of a late 20th-century gay male body aesthetic, gender, and childhood trauma. Shot with Pixel Vision, Super 8, and Hi-8, the video weaves dark, distant memories with humorous detailing of recent invasive surgical procedures.
