Sanctus

SANCTUS

Sanctus uses the moving x-rays shot by Dr. James Sibley Watson (Fall of the House of Usher, 1929 and Lot in Sodom, 1933) and his colleagues in the 1950s. Making the invisible visible, the film reveals the skeletal structure of the human body as it protects the hidden fragility of interior organ systems.

USA 1990, 19 min
