Darum geht's

On the Oaxacan coast of Mexico, tales of shapeshifting, telepathy and dealings with the devil are embedded in the colonization of the Americas. Characters from the Faust legend mingle with the inhabitants, while attempting to control nature through a seemingly never-ending building project.

Set along Mexico’s beautiful Oaxacan coast, it’s about the ways in which stories, myths, legends, etc. can be creatively projected onto the physical/natural world, creating webs, or constellations, of meaning, yet never (in Fausto’s case) at the expense of the essential, intractable mysteriousness of that landscape.

The narration often feels like a sly counterpoint, or an unreliable tether to the surreal images flashing across the screen, like a dream slowly fading into dawn.

Not so much a retelling of the “Faust” story as a meditation on the Faustian bargain itself and its implications for epistemology, Fausto is a film that bears traces of Borges, Ruíz, Duras, and Apichatpong, but remains wholly original.
