A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Anyone who has posted photos online can be deepfaked.
Positive Role Models
A woman doggedly researches the internet to find the identity of the person who superimposed her face on pornographic images online.
Misogyny is widely represented. A lot of the online nonconsensual sexual content using women's faces superimposed over other women's bodies is created by men seeking revenge against women who have seemingly "wronged" them. Men denigrate women online. One presumably male online game player scoffs when a woman joins the game. He says she should make him a sandwich.

Violence & Scariness
Deepfake porn causes trauma and anxiety in the women whose images have been used without their consent. Many women fear that others have seen them in the porn videos. Others worry the perpetrators will escalate behaviors to stalking and/or violence. The activity is not criminal in all but a few states so victims have little legal recourse. One victim is pursuing seemingly civil legal action against an identified perpetrator. Obscured images of deepfake faces with ejaculate superimposed on them are shown. Police wonder what a woman did to enrage someone enough to put her in deepfakes. A woman says she suffers from anxiety and OCD.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Porn site images with full nudity and sex acts are mostly obscured. Although deepfakes put women in fabricated sexual situations, the practice falls under the category of harassment and violence against women. A chalkboard drawing of a woman's genitals is shown. Golden showers are mentioned. On a porn site, someone fantasizes, "Greta Thunberg likes it rough." Obscured images of deepfake faces with ejaculate superimposed on them are shown.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Another Body is a documentary about deepfake porn in which unconsenting women's faces are superimposed on the bodies of video porn actors engaged in sexual acts and posted online. The film's focus is on an engineering student who learns that in 2018 and later she was deepfaked. In her sleuthing, she discovers other victimized friends and acquaintances. She eventually determines with a high degree of certainty the name of the alleged perp. Because there are few laws against creating and posting deepfakes, she has little legal recourse and the police barely do anything. Victims describe their anxiety and fears. Blurred sexual images with pixilated full nudity are shown. Language includes "f--k," "s--t," "ass," "p--sy," "c--k," "d--k," "hell," "damn," "penis," "whore," "slut," "bitch," "piss," "t-ts," "ejaculate," "golden showers," "cum," and middle finger gestures. Someone rolls a joint. Cigarettes are seen. Online posts, presumably by men, denigrate women. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
Another Body does a service in bringing the enormity of deepfake porn violation to light. The number of deepfakes online is doubling every six months and will reach 5.2 million in 2024, according to the film's estimates. Ninety percent of the deepfakes are nonconsensual porn of women and, the movie suggests, much of it is generated by disgruntled men who feel that their victims slighted them in some way. The filmmakers choose to focus on the personal impact on women who learn they've been porn deepfaked rather than on statistics or a need for political and legal reform to combat the problem. Instead of the filmmakers exploring the legal landscape or public policy, much of the screen time is devoted to conversations between two victims trying to find their perpetrator, conversations that at times are as banal and uninteresting as conversations between people we don't personally know often are. One woman finds a website that instructs wannabe deepfakers on how to superimpose women's faces on porn. They advise "scraping" women's Instagram and Facebook accounts for the main ingredients: photos.
The filmmakers and their subjects all seem to accept without question the seeming necessity for everyone in modern life to regularly post photos of intimate moments, daily activities, meals, selfies, and what used to be private thoughts and opinions online. Unfortunately, it is unrealistic to expect most people to refrain from posting their lives on social media. As teens educate themselves about this crime, they might think twice about the content they share.
