Orphea

Directed by Alexander Kluge, Khavn
Germany, 2020
Avant-Garde

Synopsis

For thousands of years, Orpheus has failed to rescue Eurydice from the underworld and bring her back to life. Alexander Kluge and Khavn revolutionise the myth by switching the genders: ‘Orphea’, the angel of history, sweeps it all with her for her ‘Euridiko’.

Critics reviews
