Simon Pummell's epic movie tells the story of a human life, using found footage from the last 100 years of cinema, cut to a powerful score by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead.
BODYSONG is a must-see emotional roller-coaster build up out ofclips of found footage from all periods of film-making from all overthe world. A cinematic experience in the true sense of the word, usingimages and music (a fantastic diverse film score from Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood) to speak to the audience on a gutand heart level. In a time where the individual is paramount thisintelligent film dares to push you to think about what it means to behuman.At first the film follows the cycle of life, starting with conception, acascade of births, growing up, mating rituals and sex, followed byviolence, destruction, old age, illness and death. Because there isno voice-over used, the images are incredibly strong. There is noway to escape the visual, you cannot box it with knowledge andtherefore the less pleasant sides of humanity are straight in yourface. We are all animals driven by procreation and lust for power,moving in herds and I watching this, am one of them. I think I amspecial, but I am not.Fortunately director Simon Pummell then shows us the redemptive side of humanity: the search for meaning. Through religion and ritual, art, dreams, beliefs and solidarity.Particularly interesting is the introduction of speech very late in thefilm, adding cinematic ally as a positive, the discerning factorsbetween animal and human: voice and reason.The film ends upbeat, pulling out into space, leaving the humanspecies on their planet, with all their smallness and bignessticking over, generation after generation.The Bodysong website delivers finally something very few filmwebsites do: a meaningful experience in itself and not just apromotional tool. The website has all the clips used in the film andit is on the website you can find out what, when and by whom. Thechoice for mostly amateur non-fiction footage makes absolutesense to me as this film speaks about real people. That thechoice is also highly personal (and anyone else making this filmwould choose different clips) echo's and underlines the theme ofthe film: we are all the same, but different.
