De humani corporis fabrica

France / USA / Switzerland
 - 2022

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.

This movie contains images that may offend some people.
