The emergency room, basements, corridors, the pneumatic tube system, but above all the human body, cut open, penetrated, sometimes with a hammer, and then with a scalpel: In their latest film, Véréna Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor explore the hospital and the bodies treated there. Using special cameras, they penetrate bodies and document various operations and human flesh. An immersive experience that brings to the fore both the fragility of our bodies and that of the institution that has to treat them. DE HUMANI CORPORIS FABRICA is a bloody film, but one in which humor always seeps through: When staff members party, "I will survive" is played, of course. (hb)
