Cadavre Exquis 2019 Bruno Mendes da Silva Category: Interactive Cinema Link: https://oscaminhosquesebifurcam.ciac.pt/ Neblina 2019 Bruno Mendes da Silva (Tribute to Vitor Reia Batista) Category: Interactive Cinema



The film Cadavre Exquis is the online version of the installation film Cadavre Exquis Expanded, which interacts with the viewer through body movements. Inspired by its homonymous surrealist game, Cadavre Exquis seeks the subversion of filmic discourse in a disruptive way, by fragmenting the unity of time and space. Three characters are sitting in the same room, motionless, crystallized in time. Each choice triggers a flashback, which will unfold up to the moment of crystallization. By choosing the last character, the viewer will unfreeze the opening scene. Three screenwriters were invited to take part in this project. Each was assigned a character, as well as unrestrictive freedom to create his/her character’s flashbacks. One of the scripts, together with the corresponding voice over, was entrusted to Vítor Reia Batista, whom this film humbly pays a tribute.
