Da Vinci

Yuri Ancarani
Italy 2012 / 25’

Medical science fiction where the human body makes for a strange planet, where biology and engineering clash. Medical instruments symbolize the latter, and look like robots from 1950s SF movies. Medical team members act as great masters reigning over the organic universe. Additional stimuli in the form of medical instruments noises and fragments of ambient music replace dialogue.
