Blood of the Beasts

Le sang des bêtes

Directed by Georges Franju
France, 1949
Documentary, Short

Synopsis

Le Sang des Bêtes describes a Paris abattoir, not only the methods of slaughtering animals, but also the melancholy district in which it is set, and the oddly genial characters of the people employed there. The treatment of this film has, surprisingly, a quiet and lyrical quality.
