Carve is a four-minute documentary film that takes a new look at body cutting as a personal, political and artistic practice. Two San Francisco-based artists share their newest work, which they draw and cut into each other’s bodies. Shot in lush black and white 16mm film, this beautifully intimate view explores cutting as an exhilarating and liberating experience.
