CELLS is a sticky film about a simple man with a far from simple plan, Martin Uit den Bogaard is one of the world’s top 10 bio-artists. How can he get a new human part to use in his work? And the righs to his own body to become his own final work? Everything is just matter, but isn’t his own philosophy a bit too superficial?
This contemplative but humorous documentary confronts us vigorously with our own private life and mortality, the western taboo of death.
