the exigent beggar (2005)

First film I ever made. Based on the unquestionably true account, as related by Thomas of
Cantimpré in his marvelous "Book of Bees" (see below). The ending was altered no doubt to suit the morals of the day and in imitation of the cyclical parables of Svankmajer, the day's hero.
Abominably transfered 16mm.
