Fixed (2015 Best of Festival Feature Winner) [60 min] By Regan Brashear; United States 

From botox to bionic limbs, the human body is more "upgradeable" than ever. Fixed rethinks "disability" and "normalcy" by exploring technologies that promise to change bodies and minds forever.

A completely bald man walks into a barber shop, his reflection in the window has told him it's time for a haircut.
