'Saturnus' - written, designed, directed and filmed by Ludo Mich in 1971 with a self-made fish-lens, and remains one of the top works of belgian underground cinema. Strange pictures and sounds are received from outer space, they show us the bizarre life on one of the moons of Saturnus. In a self-designed settings several characters act: a king, a queen, torturers, gladiators and bush women. They speak an unintelligible language (Lingala) and are dressed up grotesquely, painted in Ensorian style. The ritual operations anticipate the Wiener Aktionismus, and a lot of elements from Paul McCarthy uses are already abundantly present in this film. The soundtrack was made using fucked up sound sculptures, heavy tape machines, non stop sax outbursts and african poetry. One of the leading roles is played by Nicole Van Goetham (1941-2000), Oscar winner for her animation in 1987.
