Film Fest Gent - Ta peau si lisse

In the presence of: Wim Derave, Denis Côté

"Côté's interest is the actual process by which bodybuilder's bodies are forged and maintained. The focus is on regimes of exercise and diet, preparations for photo shoots and competitions, and the brief gaps between these activities, filmed with a sense of calm that finds the right balance between tenderness and detachment." (Slant Magazine)

UGent Morning Sessions
