LE SANG DES BÊTES (BLOOD OF THE BEASTS)

Georges Franju
France 1949 20 min.

LsA celebration of surrealist aesthetics. Raw and violent images filmed from a poetic point of view. With all of its realism, Le sang des bêtes shows us the work processes of two slaughterhouses on the outskirts of Paris, from transport and preparation to the execution and quartering of the animals. Countering these images are others of a poetic and peaceful Paris filled with children, lovers and family objects.
