I guess I have to warn you; in my past experiences of screening this video, I've noticed that some people find it somehow disturbing. For example, when it was screened at Ankara International Film Festival in 1994, I was sitting among the audience, and I heard the girl in the front row loudly complaining that what she was watching made her really nauseous and the guy who made it must be some sick bastard. I guess some people find open display of human flesh and fat (or perhaps anything that is not beautiful, for that matter) disgusting. This video "dis"es and "play"s with ugly human flesh and fat. Please be warned.
