DER SCHÖNE, DIE BIEST
Beauty and the Beast

by Mara MATTUSCHKA
1993 / 16mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 9' 30

"The consequent presentation of 'natural birth' in the urban jungle using waste paper. Die Welt serves as an aseptic sheet, an ATARI-box as a dressing table (...) The child (beauty) in the belly and later in the claws of the beast (mother). The mother tries to add some occidental sense of culture to the mother's milk. She plays, sings and dances. The astonished child sends lallophonic signals to the extra-terrestrials." (Mara Mattuschka)
