Des Christs mar milliers

Fortnight 1970, Feature film, 95'


When a museum depicting the violence man inflicts on himself opens, a doctor, a woman and a museum official go through the building before the grand opening. Discussing the subject matter, their attention quickly turns to the May Day riots that plagued Paris. This symbolic film tries to portray all victims of violence as Christlike figures. Stock footage of war and suffering are used to underscore the effectiveness of the subject matter in this uneven feature.
