Kate Shenton’s eye popping body modification documentary ON TENDER HOOKS has secured a North American release date through Philadelphia based distributor MVD. The film that shocked London’s FrightFest audience but won the hearts of Canada’s outrageous Soska Sisters has been given a street date of May 19th.
ON TENDER HOOKS challenges the perceptions and squeamishness of even the most hardened viewer as its director Kate Shenton, participates in the art of human body suspension. Whether you think it’s disgusting or intriguing, the film is a fascinating look at a subculture many will find bizarre, even frightening.
ON TENDER HOOKS is also available on DVD in the UK through 101 Films and in Scandinavia through Njuta.
