Volksmund - oder man ist, was man isst

Volksmund - oder man ist, was man isst

CH 1972 46'

Regie: Markus Imhoof
Kamera: Pio Corradi

The movie is about gluttony, with food as an example of other metabolic processes. The starting point of the playful collage is the energy law: “All natural processes are only energy transformations, but never energy production or energy destruction.”

However, physical life works according to the pleasure principle, whose goal is the generation of the greatest possible pleasure. But what if the desire of one leads to the loss of the other, since the sum of the reserves remains constant? This is decided by the right of the stronger, one must starve or will be eaten.
