Andromaq - Film - 30min - 2023

présenté dans le cadre de l'exposition Panorama 25


Once upon a spring, there were telescopes stuck to the ground, looking out for dying stars. Young Astyanax was there, in the cold heights of the oracle, headphones on as ever, listening to a broadcast from afar. One year after the war in Troy. We listen along to the story of a king in love with a queen whose man and country his sword slayed. A chain of dialogues where desire mocks political duty.
