Sympathy for a Brutalized Body




Trigger warning: reenactment of violence and assault




Screenshot


Sympathy for a Brutalized Body is a split screen of B horror movies and slap-and-kiss Thai lakorn (soap operas). Footages on the left show ghosts, stylized in pre-Siam era, haunting and eventually killing men: through choking, hanging, and burning them. On the right are footages of the popular slap-and-kiss lakorn, where a man forcefully kisses a woman until she gives in or pushes him away then slaps him. This video explores Thai misogyny and distressed bodies in media while asking, "Who do you give your sympathy to?"
