‘De humani corporis fabrica’ critique: guts of the soul

“De humani corporis fabrication”

Address: Verena Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor

Year: 2022

Premiere: 26 May 2023


Which Verena Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor They Build For Themselves is an extremely fearless and instinctive piece of documentary. In ‘Leviathan’ (2012) they boarded a trawler to contemplate the fish that had been thrown on deck and sunk into the sea, and in ‘Caniba’ (2017) they brought them dangerously close to hideous skin and incomprehensible ‘psyches’. – a new study of a cannibal killer explores the landscapes that extend into our bodies through images that are as dazzling as they are disturbing, and as terrifying as they are beautiful. Filmed over 7 years in various French hospitals, the film traverses the bloody passages and pulsating caverns patients hide inside.

“De humani corporis fabrication” looks into the brain, slides through the intestines, watches an eyeball being transplanted and metal clamps attached to the prostate, is attached to a tube inserted into an unconscious man, and often the focus shifts to the men and women who perform these interventions. Capture casual conversations and disturbing confessions. The camera examines organs and cavities so much that when watching the movie, one sometimes feels like being transported to another galaxy. And although it is not enjoyable from time to time, it is one of the trips you will never forget.
