Retrospective | ANIMAL REALITIES
LE SANG DES BÊTES aka BLOOD OF THE BEASTS
FR 1949, D: Georges Franju, Doc, 23’, original with English subtitles, DCP
BLOOD OF THE BEASTS is the portrayal of the daily routines of Parisian slaughterhouses. The short film is equally interested in the intrinsic, aesthetic value that the black and white pictures extract from the detailed slaughterings as well as in the desperate situation of the animals.
FR/UK/US 2012, D: Lucien Castaing-Taylor, Véréna Paraval, Doc, 87’, engl. OV with german subtitles, DCP
Likewise in LEVIATHAN, the film’s aesthetics enters into a dialogue with the portrayed food industry: at the centre is a high seas fishing boat, but what exactly there is to be seen and heard seems obscured. It is lesser about the understanding of the working processes but to a greater degree about a genuine cinematic experience of this extreme place, in which humans, animals and technology conflate into a kind of mystic symphony.
