The Masterbator // François-Xavier Destors

Destors François-Xavier Destors

“To write grotesque things is my way of laughing at death”, once said Edgar  Hilsenrath, a Holocaust survivor who dared to turn genocide into satire in his books.  The Masturbator is an animated documentary journey through his iconoclastic,  crude and hilarious world.
