The Deformed and Deranged: “Caterpillarplasty” by David Barlow-Krelina

From the NFB: “Fusing elements of Kafka and Kubrick, Caterpillarplasty is a prescient, grotesque CG sci-fi satire that lifts plastic surgery to another level.

“A powerful and sardonic take on a social obsession with beauty that’s spiraled out of control.”
