Larva Mental (2020) is the title of the extreme film presented by the Italian director Domiziano Cristopharo (House of Flesh Mannequins) and directed by the newcomer Mikel Balerdi (born in 1985), an artist of Basque origin linked to the world of painting, tattoos and body suspension but also to that of the most extreme body art, a field in which it is known for its shocking and powerful shows.
Halfway between extreme and experimental cinema, Larva Mental is a mirror that reflects extreme body art as a form of transgression and expression but, above all, it is an excursion into the director's imaginative and painful mind.

lMikel Balerdi writes, directs and plays a film that is certainly unsustainable given the topic addressed. In Larva Mental the human body becomes the artistic fulcrum that reveals the complex inner world of the artist, who manages to externalize it with manifestations of all kinds and against any sense of modesty.
In this regard, the performer and director goes further by pushing himself into irreverent and profanatory practices of the human body, insulting religion and the meaning of life with clear provocative intentions





man who goes away from home for days leaving his daughter alone (Dairi Gaona). The latter, after having unintentionally found videos that immortalize him in some extreme performances, writes him a farewell letter and then gets lost in the path of self-harm.
Returning from the long journey, the man will come to terms with his inner monsters and will let himself go to any form of self-destruction as an extreme gesture of physical and psychic punishment .

In addition to being a cauldron of extreme body representations in which self-harm and nudity rites related to performing art prevail, Larva Mental is a place where drugs, incest and various paraphilias also lurk, including necrophilia. In this regard, Balerdi's film recalls Buio Omega by Joe D'Amato while the colorful decomposing body (created by the director himself in collaboration with Dairi Gaona) seems to pay homage to that of the mermaid found by a painter in Mermaid in a Manhole , the fourth chapter of the Japanese saga Guinea Pig .
