  Four experimental films of artist and avant-garde filmmaker Bady Minck, oscillating between Mexican step pyramids and the spinal cord of Adolf Loos, between whispering postcards and edible mountains, between dream and nightmare.
The multiple award-winning feature film In the Beginning was the Eye "participates in a typically Austrian massacre play but sets itself apart through the strength of its talent and focus. Armed with an avalanche of postcards, the film delves deep into a world of clichés, revealing the horrors the picture-perfect surfaces conceal." (Jean-Philippe Tessé, Cahiers du Cinéma) "At times a dreamlike vision, at times political, philosophical and even culinary, the film is technically perfect. The stunning sound and visuals and the hypnotic editing ensure that you don't get bored for a second." (Martin Granica, Repérages) The Beauty is the Beast raises the issue of the pros and cons of our cultivation in what feels like a Kafkaesque dream. In Mécanomagie, borders of perception and laws of nature are breached so that something new may emerge: "Nature in a boundless state of intoxication!" (Peter Illetschko, Sixpack Film) The Man with modern Nerves takes the viewer on a highspeed-journey through the spinal cord of Adolf Loos.
With her exceptional use of frame by frame animation, multiple exposures, time-lapse and slow motion, Bady Minck undermines standardised habits of seeing and sets the focus on sensory perception itself.
