Introduction by Rita Casale und Borjana Gaković
There are countless corpses in the streets and undergrounds and on the plazas. Passers-by walk by indifferently or climb over them, since taking care of them is forbidden. A young man who speaks an unknown language is washed ashore. In a bar, he meets Antigone, a young upper-class woman who seeks her brother among the dead. Together they begin to drive bodies out of the city and bury them. Liliana Cavani’s ‘Antigone’ adaptation in widescreen format is far less known than her later, internationally-discussed Night Porter, despite the performance of famous lead actress Britt Ekland and the score by Ennio Morricone.
