Stone of Folly

Canada, 2002 (MIFF 2003, Animation)

Director: Jesse Rosensweet

In a vast medieval hospital a doctor enters the x-ray room, where we catch a glimpse of the process as performed 500 years ago. He continues into the operating theatre, where the patient is 'anaesthetised'. The procedure works, but there is something wrong with the methodology ... Screened at Cannes (Jury Prize), Annecy, Tampere.
