'Hooked' is a film following the practice of human body suspension through a day in the life of a group of professional Los Angeles piercers on a journey into some uncharted territory. Neil and Brett are looking for the perfect shot. Shelby is looking to escape. Can the members of Ephemme Suspension Performance find the right balance before it's too late? This film is a product of undergraduate anthropological research focused on the social construction of pain through body modification in association with the University of St. Andrews.
