Paralysis [research]

Paralysis [research]

2015, The Netherlands

Saturday 21Nov 2015, 18pm. Karel van Laere started with his preliminary survey research for his short film Largo.

Largo combines images of a body that is being towed through various landscapes with soundtracks of interviews with persons who are completely paralyzed. In order to experience what it is to be completely paralyzed, Karel was fastened onto a table, lying motionless for 24 hours.
The final two hours of this project [sunday 22, 16:00-18:00 pm.] were open for a selected audience.

Recorded at ZAAL3, The Hague.

This project was made possible by: Fonds The Art of Impact, Het Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie and Theater aan het Spui The Hague.
