Heal the Living

With “Réparer les vivants” by Katell Quillévéré

Synchronised breathing in the dark of the cinema can have a therapeutic effect, and it is no coincidence that injury and healing – the miracle of regenerating bodies and souls – has been a central motif throughout cinematic history. This selection of six films, which borrows its title from the French film Réparer les vivants (Heal the Living), oscillates between these two opposing states.
