Watch online: Opening the human body
One of the most challenging films from the festival selection, De Humani Corporis Fabrica, can now be viewed online on MUBI. Be quick, because the film will only be online for a few weeks.
Prior to the festival screening, we talked to a team that knows the human body inside and out: an operating team from Radboudumc shared their love for all the wonders of the body. How do you relate to the body when you are on the operating table so often? And what does the film look like through the eyes of a surgeon? Watch this Talk below!
Five centuries ago, anatomist André Vésale opened the human body to science for the first time. De Humani Corporis Fabrica opens up the human body on the silver screen, with microcameras that reach places in our body that could not be captured before. Our human flesh turns out to be an imposing landscape that exists through the gaze and attention of others. This film offers a challenging, groundbreaking look at and in our own body.
