Wild Fruits

16mm, DV & HD | 25min | colour | in development

A staged adaptation of Michel de Montaigne’s essay, Of Cannibals. The film moves 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. This trilogy aims to investigate the historical transition from questions surrounding sexual deviance into questions of sexual identity, through fiction. Moreover, to think how cannibalism, as both a cultural and literary practice, took part in this transition.
