LE VENTRE, UN SUPER MONDE – Boris Lehman et René Pacquot

LE VENTRE, UN SUPER MONDE, 1974, René Pacquot et Boris Lehman, 18 min, Club Antonin Artaud de Bruxelles

Le ventre, un supermonde (1974) is the translation into images of a symbolic universe filled with fantasy: raw meats squashed and devoured, teeming rats, chained men in a a house that means to be both refuge and hell, belly and brain, visited by a pregnant queen.

Collage movie, dialogue between the mother and her unborn child, the movie can be perceived as a personal auto-analysis of René Pacquot, who conveys in an oniric way his conflicts with the maternal, medical, and religious authority.
