My Body

USA, 1997 (MIFF 1998, Fiction)

Director: Joel Moffett

Charlie is a neurotic, self-loathing individual. After years of denial, a one night stand leads to him contracting a new and rare disease called 'Sexually Repressed Shedding Disorder'. The results include a strange duplication of his body. He discovers he only has 24 hours to 'reintegrate' his new body back into his old, in order to continue his safe, closeted existence. My Body is an action-paced romp which takes light-hearted approach toward the very serious issue of sexual regeneration.
