Five centuries ago, anatomist André Vésale opened up the human body to science for the first time in history. Today, DE HUMANI CORPORIS FABRICA opens the human body to the cinema. It reveals that human flesh is an extraordinary landscape that exists only through the gaze and attention of others. As places of care, suffering and hope, hospitals are laboratories that connect every body in the world. –Grasshopper Films 

“A phantasmagorical journey… An eye-opening film… Through these directors’ eyes, these bodies look wondrous and unsettling, macabre and beautiful, and often uncannily unfamiliar. CRITIC’S PICK!” — Nicolas Rapold, The New York Times 

“Extraordinary… digs deep into the human body and opens up landscapes as otherworldly—and harrowing—as any you’re likely to see.” — Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times 

CONTENT WARNING: Please be aware that DE HUMANI CORPORIS FABRICA contains graphic documentary footage of surgery and other medical procedures. Viewer discretion is advised.
