Largo

Largo

2016, The Netherlands

Inspired by an intense preliminary survey research [Paralysis] and by interviewing two people who live their lives being completely paralyzed, performer and filmmaker Karel van Laere made his short film Largo. A film/performance that shows the defenceless human body surrounded by machines, systems, etc.

Using an electric winch he drags himself in an even pase through the Dutch urban and industrial landscape. Marking in an entertaining and wondrous way the contrast between the route of the vulnerable human body and the hectic world surrounding it.
