De Humani Corporis FabricaLucien Castaing-Taylor, Verena Paravel

Have you ever seen the inside of your own body? This documentary takes you on a journey through the body. Quite literally. During surgeries, endoscopic cameras discover the body from the inside and give anatomy lessons. Verena Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor visit various hospitals, attend surgeries and are confronted with the finite nature of the body. An experimental way to learn about the body, but not suitable for sensitive viewers.
