The Sphinx

Le Sphinx

Directed by Thierry Knauff
Belgium, 1986
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

Fragments of a text by Jean Genet – “Four Hours in Chatila” – are illustrated by summer images of a park in Brussels. The contrast between what is seen and what is said attempts to stop, to break the flow of information which tends to neutralize horror.
