Spoonbenders

(UK 1999) - Documentary - colour - 28 minutes

Spoon Benders is a child led documentary into the strange world of paranormal metal bending. The film looks at two different generations of 'child benders', and with contributions from established scientists, probes beneath the surface of society's preconceptions about children. This juxtaposing of the world of the scientist and the world of the child give the film both its internal dynamic and its sense of poignancy. Spoon Benders is a humanist story set against the background of an intense and passionate controversy.
