Our Lady of Paris

Nuestra Señora de París

Directed by Téo Hernandez
Mexico, 1982
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

The camera, leaded by the agility and the power impressed by the arms, is a phallic prolongation. The vibration of the image, my compulsive rhythm, is a sexual act intensified and amplified.

What are people saying?

  • francisca bacon's rating of the film Our Lady of Paris

    Experimental, eks-perimetral work w/ every image shaken, shed, shrugged off as if during some violent ecdysis. “The convulsive rhythm, the vibration are an amplified sexual act”, says Teo Hernandez. The camera scribbles, strips, rips in this ecdysiast (stripper) film that disrobes endlessly the row of visual veils, crossing in wild staccato gunfire, spasms, typewriters, ecstatic chant, sewing machines, electric noise
