A Single Body (Un Seul Corps) is tightly constructed portrait of male friendship set against the intense backdrop of a slaughterhouse, where best friends and skilled workers, David and Wani, diligently ply their trade, saving for their own butchery. But as they near the realisation of their dream, the arrival of a new worker will test the bonds of their shared life.
Link Digital is a supporter of Canberra filmmaker Sotiris Dounoukos and will produce two websites over the next year to support both A Single Body and the directors’ upcoming feature film Joe Cinques Consolation.
The script was developed in Australia and later received France’s Association Beaumarchais short film script award. The shoot took place in regional Bourgogne, with post production in Paris and Athens. The film’s international premiere was at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2014, where it won the Vimeo Award for Best International Short Film.
