Supervenus

is a short movie by French experimental animation director Frédéric Doazan. The short movie is the modern vision of the venus, the common ideal of beauty. Imagine a game that combines the legendary board game Operation and the endearing paper dolls we used to play with in our childhood. Now, imagine how unpleasant a plastic surgery can be. Put it all together and the result will be ‘Supervenus’. In as little as 2:38 minutes, Frédéric Doazan achieves to deliver a quick (and creepy) review of the evolution of the concept of beauty in society and how the canons have changed over the years: the idea of eternal youth turned into an unhealthy obsession. Thus, in ‘Supervenus’ we see the hands of surgeon opening an anatomy book where we discover a classic woman’s body. Not satisfied with what he sees, his hands begin to operate, unscrupulously changing the figure of the woman and adapting it to the trends in plastic surgery: elongated neck and legs, sharp cheekbones, thin, wasp-like waist…
