“Foreign Body” uses humor and feminist undertones to tell a story about one’s slow reconciliation with their own body, the feeling of self-acceptance and acknowledgement that “different” not always equals “ugly”. By utilizing horror conventions and absurd humor, Marta Magnuska spins a tale of a girl whose body changes suddenly after an unfortunate accident.
