De Humani Corporis Fabrica
Directors: Verena Paravel, Lucien Castaing-Taylor, Documentary, France, 118 min

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.

“An astonishing dive into the human body. A real-life Fantastic Voyage. Remarkable. It left this writer with a deeper understanding of the proverbial, universal self — and maybe with what it means to be human.”

— A.A. Dowd, Digital Trends
