Gods of the Supermarket

Alberto Gonzalez Morales

Switzerland
2022, 8'

The male body and notions of beauty are the starting point of a film that discusses the extent to which fantasy is unattainable.

In a series of appropriated images – more or less randomly – from the internet, we wander through an amusing and frenetic discourse on the tension of love-hate for the body. In this protein shakes and energy bars culture, we are faced with two inverse but complementary feelings: on one hand, the attraction for this herculean body present both on supermarket shelves and in porn films, on the other, the repulsion for the real body that does not correspond to these ideals. (Jéssica Pestana)
