De Humani Corporis Fabrica

France, Switzerland, United States

An incredible odyssey inside the human body. Through miniature cameras, we are called upon to experience a caesarean delivery, a cataract operation, a prostate removal and other interventions, literally from the inside. An intimate journey, bordering on the unspeakable, interspersed with multiple comments from doctors in the exercise of their function. A film-experience that also takes on important moral issues about the progressive degradation of our bodies, the medical system, empathy and care.
