 This is a short video from Mexico where we get a dead baby being bathed in a tub full of some very unclean looking liquid. It also has some nails pulled out of it. Why it had nails in it in the first place I have no idea. Then it gets wrapped in some plastic wrap, I guess for fresh keeping although it doesn't look very fresh to start out with. The director here, Teresa Margolles, specializes in the artistic use of corpses. I'm guessing corpses are a lot easier to come by in Mexico than many other places that don't have murderous drug cartels and whatnot.
 I saw this recently as part of a collection of underground Mexican cinema brought to the U.S. by Nick Zedd and while there's no narrative to follow it was by far the most memorable out of the stuff he showed just for the strange visual of a little corpse being scrubbed and there's clearly some artistic commentary about the narrow distinction between life and death or something along those lines. Throw it on at your next shindig, I'm sure it will be a big hit with all your breeder friends.
