** Director Helena Wittmann in attendance on April 29 at 7:30pm! **
(Helena Wittmann, France & Germany, 2022, 106 min, in English, French, Portuguese & Serbo-Croatian with English subtitles)
The film follows Ida (Dogtooth’s Angeliki Papoulia), who, after a stirring encounter with the French Foreign Legion sets sail with her own corps of five men, none of whom speak the same language, to trace the route of this fabled troop. Their voyage will take them from Marseille to Corsica and finally to Sidi Bel Abbès, Algeria, the historical headquarters of the Legion. Along the way, boundaries blur. Life at sea produces a special kind of mutual understanding. A legionnaire of yore makes an about-face.

“Helena Wittmann is uniquely elemental, even primal, in her concerns…Human Flowers of Flesh pushes her formal and thematic predilections towards a vanishing poing where narrative dovetails with pure aesthetic elegance.” – Jordan Cronk, Cinema Scope
“Wittmann’s daring second feature is a gorgeously immersive, fluid work of cinema.” – Sight and Sound
