Germany, 1991


CANDIDA is an adaptation of Frans Masereel’s 1920 woodcut-novel “The Idea." The story concerns the form of a woman- whether she’s concocted from scratch, or or merely raised in darkness, remains open to interpretation – thrown from her prison-like domicile, only to make a crazed sprint for the city.
