Description

Cinema of the Body
This programme is international, historical and thematic drawing from the unique collection of the LFMC and other distributors of experimental films. The body is a rich source of content in film, from Muybridge's studies to body-art, portraiture, sexuality and the erotic, which tests the limits between intimacy and pornography. Charged with signs through look, gaze, gesture, posture, expression, the body becomes the inscription in a physical yet imaginary engagement with the image.
