Abbatoirs (1986) [Short]

Belgium (MIFF 1995 , Buried Treasures - Oberhausen Retrospective)
Director: Thierry Knauff

Abattoirs is shot in black and white and has a very sparse sound-track. Its takes are stark there is hardly a camera movement sometimes pho­tographs are filmed. Furthermore, almost unique in the history of film the film has square pic tures which add to its intensity.
