Why Nobody Likes Surgery

PorcelainCowlickBoy doesn't like surgery. In fact, he hates surgery so much that he's posted a film about it for all to see. Exploring patients' experiences in theatre through a series of images and sounds that highlight the invasiveness of operations, we have a powerful sense of why many people would rather not be put under the knife.

What do you think?

NB This video contains images of blood and invasive procedures which you may find disturbing.

I would say hello back, but nevermind. ;)

Interesting film, Taz. It did make me feel slightly queasy -- owing mainly to the colour! It's shot in an interestingly filmic way which detracts mercifully from the realism.
