Second Bodies

Second Bodies is a Machinima film that poetically explores the avatar experiences of three women (including the filmmaker’s) in the virtual reality world of Second Life. This point-of-view, semi-autobiographical documentary intimately reflects on self-perception, body image, disability, mental illness, suicide, and virtual love as embodied in both real-life identity and virtual (online) identity.
