An “Exquisite Corpse” combines documentary, fiction and experimental film-making as it traverses the social and oneiric landscape of a region struggling between modernity and tradition. It explores ritual and performance from festivals to everyday life combining the real and the surreal, the fantastical and the banal, that which is vital and that which is purely entertainment. The reenactment of rituals within changing crowds and contexts illuminates the complex striving for understanding and for giving meaning to the small acts of everyday life. They also glimpse the need for release and catharsis. The myths, as torrid and exuberant as the geography, are often more concrete than reality and during the autopsy the corpse itself reveals something more repugnant than death, the submission of the living to it. This fantastical collective biography explores the psyche of an individual reflecting a multitude. It immerses into a dense mythological universe by narrating the life of a being in the process of unbeing, a character becoming a corpse.

El Cadáver Exquisito | Verdant Tunnel

El Cadáver Exquisito | Verdant Tunnel

by
Sombra

Film posters have been used since the earliest public exhibitions of film.

They began as outside placards listing the programme of (short)
films to be shown inside the hall or movie theater. By the early 1900s,
they began to feature illustrations of a scene from each individual film
or an array of overlaid images from several scenes.

El Cadáver Exquisito explores the psyche of an individual reflecting a multitude.

"The past is not dead. it is not even past."

- William Faulkner -

The concept of The Exquisite Corpse,
a technique of automatic writing and drawing within a group that
originated in the Surrealist movement, was of interest to project
because of the process of working with and working through the chain of
consequences and connections that are often unexpected.

This technique allowed them to work intuitively and non-linearly and
to piece the literal body of the film together in the editing room.  The
principal guidelines were sketched out at the projects inception and
they served as a stark skeleton that would mold the project into its
form.

A vigilante man
with shotgun in hand, spends his days watching over and protecting a
rural property. He is haunted by memories of his life during war. He is
willing to tell what he remembers, saw and did. He just doesn’t want to
show his face.

Original film posters distributed to theaters and other poster
venues (such as bus stops) by the movie studios are never sold directly
to the public. However, most modern film posters are produced in large
quantities and normally become available for purchase by collectors
indirectly through various secondary markets such as Ebay.

Accordingly, most modern posters are not rare. However, some recent posters, such as the recalled Pulp Fiction "Lucky Strikes" United States one sheet poster, are quite rare and valuable.
