TIFF 2019: Flesh Review

Thanks to Highball.TV for sponsoring ThatShelf’s 2019 TIFF Coverage!

Camila Kater’s animated documentary interviews five women about a different stage of their lives, dividing each section into chapters based around the levels of doneness for meat (“Rare” for the youngest all the way up to “Well Done” for the oldest). The subjects form a diverse collection of experiences, with each section homing in on the way others perceive their female bodies, and how those perceptions have impacted them. Kater’s use of various animation techniques, ranging from stop motion to playing with celluloid, works to great effect with her film’s structure, finding commonality between various lives to form a portrait of womanhood.
