StillLiving

Austria, 1995 (MIFF 1995, Experimental)

Director: Caroline Weihs, Barbara Graf, Michael Domes

A choreographed examination of the kinetic naked human body made up of three thousand photographs which are elaborately animated as a succession of poses, movements and gender metamorphoses. Highly precise and formally beautiful, this is a fascinating reflection on film, video and photography as a museum for the flesh pushing the limits of an 'exquisite corpse' into a zone of clinical eroticism and machine bodies of disconnected limbs and alienated erogenous parts.
