Avant-Garde, Short
  • None

Synopsis

The Exquisite Corpus is based on various erotic films and advertising rushes. Myriad fragments are melted into a single sensuous, humorous, gruesome, and ecstatic dream.

Our take

We’re deliciously thrilled to premiere online avant-garde maverick Peter Tscherkassky’s dreamy mash-up of softcore cinema. Ecstatically analog—the celluloid is manipulated by hand in the darkroom—this climactic short teases and exposes not just bodies but film itself. Read our director interview.
