The first feature film from accomplished short filmmaker Kate Shenton “On Tender Hooks” is a fly-on-the-wall documentary film delving into the world of Human Suspension; the act of piercing metal hooks through flesh and using them to suspend mid-air.
Filmed over the course of a year, Kate follows groups in the UK, Croatia and Norway who practice this art form, gaining a deep insight into the secretive and guarded community. Kate discovers how far the body can be pushed, the benefits it has on the mind and even goes on her own journey into suspending for the first time.
Director, produced and edited by Kate Shenton
Sylvia's Soska quote:
''Beyond the shock factor of suspension, comes Kate Shenton's honest, humanizing look behind the scenes in the body mod community's suspension scene with On Tender Hooks. The film is much more a character piece on the individuals which is a welcome approach to a group that is most often wrongly villainized. A truthful, beautiful, spiritual journey for those us who are not brave enough for their own suspensions as of yet.'
One for the morbidly curious, this is a fascinating and engrossing doc that’s certain to provoke a reaction. – Film4.com
