故事梗概 Synopsis



Comments about this video posted on YouTube and read by two voice actors are the starting point of Damaged Goods. The comments seem to guide the movements of the two male dancers, ultimately influencing to what extent they dare to live their lives. The contrast between the comments and the intimacy of the dancers invites the viewer to reflect and to take a stand. Although the video seems to focus on the gay community, it has a broader relevance in the sense that the video shows the impact of the Internet and social media on the lives of individuals and groups. The video can be seen as a metaphor for the mechanism of oppression of people who deviate from what is considered the norm. Apparent tolerance, as a latent form of control that forces individuals to live within socially acceptable boundaries, can also be seen as a major theme of Damaged Goods.
