Winning the Golden Bear as the grand prize of the Berlin Film Festival, On Body and Soul tells a heart-warming love story with elements of magical realism. Hungarian director Ildiko Enyedi’s first feature following an 18-year hiatus, the film is set in a Budapest slaughterhouse. Strict, and asocial, Maria even has her lunches by herself at work. She gets close to her similarly quiet and introverted boss Endre, and by pure chance, the two discover that they have the same dreams at night. They are puzzled, incredulous, a bit frightened, but then, they try to stand together in real life as in their dreams.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
