Details

"I remember seeing Bodysong and feeling like I was in a trance... moving, scary and hypnotic."
Paul Thomas Anderson

An epic vision of love, sex, violence and death, Bodysong is the story of an archetypal human life told through archive footage from across the world and spanning 100 years of cinema. With an ambitious score by Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood, director Simon Pummell has created an almost mythic work that is a celebration, and also an indictment, of humanity.

PCM stereo audio (48k/16bit).
