synopsis
Departing from Michel de Montaigne’s essay, Of Cannibals, the film portrays the author’s life against the backdrop of the French religious wars and colonial expansion; moving through contradictory spaces of freedom and oppression, exploring the frictions between theatrical and cinematic modes, and tensions between the domestic and feral.

Wild Fruits constitutes the final volume of Trilogia Canibal - a series of works that make the relation between sexuality and cannibalism their subject.
