Winner of a Special Jury Award at SXSW, Another Body follows a college student’s search for answers and justice after she discovers deepfake pornography of herself circulating online. More than just a cautionary tale about misused technology and the toxicity of the online world, this documentary allows the young woman to tell her own story as she fights against this shocking act of identity theft. With a highly novel and sensitive approach, filmmakers Sophie Compton and Reuben Hamlyn transform the deepfake technology at the core of this story from a destructive weapon to a means to amplify the voice of a woman reclaiming her own image.
