The Fruit of Thy Womb

In 1997, Albert won Le Léopard de Demain at the festival of Locarno for The Fruit of Thy Womb. To evade the incomprehensible world of adults seven-year-old Natascha creates her own world, influenced by her impressions of sexuality and religion. It is a world of mainly catholic imaginations and symbols - a world between frightening bogey men and flying Christ childs. (B.A.)
