Oh, Uomo

QUINZAINE 2004 Feature film | 1h10


After Prigionieri della guerra and Su tutte le vette è pace, this film concludes Yervant Gianikian and Angela Ricci Lucchi’s trilogy on the first world war. From the emblem of totalitarianism to individual physical suffering, the directors use this representation of man’s rampaging violence to draw up an anatomical inventory of the damaged body and examine the consequences of the conflict on children, from 1919 to 1921. From the deconstruction to the artificial reconstruction of the human body, they try to understand how humanity can forget itself and perpetuate these horrors.
