Camille Henrot (b. 1978)
Saturday (2017)
As both a sacred day of rest for certain faiths and a day for personal activities, we look to the possibilities expressed in “Saturday" with great expectation. Camille Henrot’s film explores how we, as humans, engage with the idea of hope in the midst of global crises and structural anxiety. Are we able to digest and cope with any situation, no matter how difficult? The film addresses this question by considering different forms of our inner life, such as prayer and baptism, cosmetic surgery, and the digestion of food.
