In less than fifteen minutes, Victor conducts a cinematic experiment to investigate the nature of his body. To others, it is the body of a disabled person. Perhaps to him it is an indomitable organ.

Victor's Body. An experiment on the control of our anatomy

Part performance, part experimental short film, this fascinating film is a dissection of the body of a "disabled person" from a vision that does not admit labels.

Directors Victor Di Marco and Márcio Picoli use a series of heterogeneous cinematographic resources, such as theatrical performance, make-up and optical effects. 

The idea is to communicate a sense of impotence and at the same time of pure power, the power of the very existence we inhabit in our trunks and limbs.
