Gasper Noe on Enter the Void

What was the inspiration for Enter the Void?

I used to believe I could have an out of body experience, so I tried breath-control exercises, but they never worked. Some people say that when you’re on mushrooms sometimes you can come out of your body, but that never happened to me either. I think it may be a human need to believe in such things; in the same way that some people believe they see flying saucers, people dream that they can come out of their body, like the soul was not linked to the matter, or to the flesh itself.

For me the soul is part of the flesh – there is not a consciousness without the flesh. so if you want to keep your human consciousness, you have to be inside your body.
