The world’s foremost avant-garde director, Peter Tscherkassky, comes to London to present his festival gem The Exquisite Corpus. A found-footage film made using various erotic films and advertising rushes, The Exquisite Corpus plays on the “cadaver exquis” technique used by the Surrealists, drawing disparate body parts and constellating magical creatures. Myriad fragments are melted into a single sensuous, humorous, gruesome, and ecstatic dream.
