STORY OF MY DEATH, 2013, Albert Serra, 148, Andergraun Films, Spain/France/Romania
Winner of the prestigious Golden Leopard award for Best Film at the Locarno International Film Festival in 2013, Albert Serra’s STORY OF MY DEATH is a baroque reflection on pleasure and erotic desire dramatized from an imagined meeting between the ageing Casanova and Count Dracula. The journey begins as Casanova meets a new servant who will witness his last moments in life. From a Swiss castle with its gallant and libertine Eighteenth Century atmosphere, to his final days spent in poor and shadowy Northern lands. There, his rationalist way of thinking and frivolous and mundane world will succumb to a new, violent, occult and romantic force, represented by Dracula and his eternal power.
HONOR OF THE KNIGHTS, 2006, Albert Serra, 107, Andergraun Films, Spain
Albert Serra’s visionary reimaging of Don Quixote finds Quixote and Sancho on a directionless journey as they wander through Catalonia in search of adventures. Serra’s atmospheric and contemplative approach reveals a moving portrait of friendship as the two wanderers discuss spiritual, chivalrous and practical matters along the way.
