La Bêtise

Thomas Corriveau
Canada | 2016 | 6’45 | v.o. sott. it

Two characters meet and confront each other with unparalleled violence. The film, loosely based on the series of works The Disasters of War (1810-1815) by Francisco de Goya, reveals us, through a flow of black and white images, some brief repeated gestures, in an obsessive and hypnotic way.
