Adieu, Corpus!

Alexander Isaenko
SYNOPSIS
Adieu, Corpus’ is a short film about versatility of human body. Body is the flesh, the corpus, the frame for organs, the assembly of limbs, the collection of rules, and the limits by which we define ourselves. The film shows the body as a place, and not as a subject. It is travelling along its borders, groping the way in time through events, rather than linearly, balancing at the edge of the rules, until once…crosses its own limitations and steps out of the frame. The body physically dies converting into virtual one.

A space-out-of-time that once was sacred and that nowadays has become scientific, biological.
