About what unites us and what divides us

In The Mass Man, director Wouter Van Looy and video artist Wim Catrysse continue their exploration of the human condition. Nobel Prize winner Elias Canetti’s Crowds and Power is their guide. What is the lust for power? How do you manipulate the masses? With Canetti's masterly book as their sounding board, Zefiro Torna make mediaeval music.
