A carriage inhabited by aristocrats escapes to some unknown place. Death lies in wait for them and they rejoice: the bacchanal includes experimental music and an electronic party. In the last minutes of his new film, in dialogue with Edgardo Cozarinsky, also a filmmaker and actor in SINFON14, Raúl Perrone describes a sequence as lysergic. Beyond mutations and driftings, that which is lysergic seems to function as a connecting thread: the camera moves with ease, each scene proposes an unconventional, excessive formal search. There are nods to horror movies such as a masked man stalking an aristocrat, a girl dressed in white referencing the phanstasmagorical. The key, however, is always tied to eroticism. With nothing to lose, as they traverse dark paths, these decadent figures indulge in debauchery.
Raúl Perrone was born in Ituzaingó, Buenos Aires, where he has independently shot over 60 films. Among them are Favula (2014, 29th Festival), CUMPARSIT4 (2016, 31st Festival) and Corsario (2018, 33rd Festival). In 2015, the Viennale did a retrospective of his work.
