"A towering, teetering and exquisitely-wrought puzzle box." - David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"A meditative gem." - Sophie Monks Kaufman, Indiewire
"Wittmann’s daring second feature is a gorgeously immersive, fluid work of cinema." - James Lattimer, Sight and Sound
Opens April 21 | In this cerebral and meditative cinematic expedition, ship captain Ida (DOGTOOTH’s Angeliki Papoulia) sails from Marseille to Corsica with a crew of five men, none of whom speak the same language, to trace the route of the French Foreign Legion. With a hypnotic pace and arresting visuals (Wittman acts as her own cinematographer and shoots on gauzy, textured 16mm), HUMAN FLOWERS OF FLESH is slow cinema at its finest, a liminal study of adventure and discovery evocative of Claire Denis’ BEAU TRAVAIL, but charting a course entirely of its own. Director Helena Wittmann in attendance on Saturday, April 22, 7:00PM for a post-screening Q&A. Film Center exclusive.
