The Sufferings of a Ravaged Egg

Les souffrances d'un oeuf meurtri

Directed by Roland Lethem
Belgium, 1967
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

With the aesthetically and thematically merciless and incendiary poetic 15-minute short Les souffrances d’un oeuf meurtri (1967), Lethem proved that maggots in postmortem vaginas make for sapient symbolic social commentary against the Catholic church.
