A god disembowels himself, until bleeding to death. From his remains emerges a female figure, giving birth to a son condemned to wander a barren earth for all eternity. With its narrative reduced to the very minimum, Begotten presents itself as a dark and experimental fantasy, full of nightmarish imagery. A true cult film that we rescue from obscurity here in its original 16mm format.
E. Elias Merhige
He directed the films Begotten (00) and Suspect Zero (04), as well as different shorts containing a very personal iconography and music videos for Marilyn Manson, Interpol and Danzig.
