Synopsis
Five centuries ago, anatomist André Vésale opened up the human body to science for the first time in history. Today, De Humani Corporis Fabrica opens the human body to the cinema. It reveals that human flesh is an extraordinary landscape that exists only through the gaze and attention of others. As places of care, suffering and hope, hospitals are laboratories that connect every body in the world.

« Penetrating and profound. »

The Hollywood Reporter

« Plunges into the human body in ways rarely seen onscreen. »

The Hollywood Reporter

« A new master of body horror in town. »

The Hollywood Reporter

« Fascinating. »

The Hollywood Reporter

« We’re riveted by what we’re seeing, which can be both hard to stomach and transfixingly beautiful in the way that an abstract expressionist canvas can be, filled with multitudes of colors, shapes, shadows and light. »

The Hollywood Reporter

« Some cinema hits you in the gut, this film places you right inside the gut, it’s a visit you’re not likely to forget. »
