Bodyhack: Metal Gear Man

In two parts, this powerful short-form documentary follows 25 year-old James Young as he tries to regain control of his body after a terrible accident - by becoming part Cyborg.

James tragically lost an arm and a leg when he was dragged on to the tracks between two carriages of the London DLR as it was pulling in. Despite his loss, James refuses to let it interrupt his life and love of travel and video games.

In a bizarre twist of fate, James receives a bionic arm from gaming company Konami, modelled on lead character Snake from Metal Gear Solid.

This moving story is told in a first person perspective including gaming footage and the use of innovative filming techniques with a new type of camera called a ‘dji osmo'.
