Andromeda is a performance film that plays with texts and iconography in a postmodern manner. A combination of texts written by author CarlosMagno Rodríguez and his co-authors Giselle Werneck, Lindbergh Fernandez, interspersed with quotes from Lucien Ducasse’s Isidora (Fragments from the Songs of Maldoror) combined with biblical quotations and lengthy discussions on pollution, etc. Read out by a character with a megaphone, they are no longer outrageous, transgressive or liberating, just twisted literature of enchantment, with no morals. The characters pose for an iconographic composition close to the Christian and Renaissance traditions, a kind of imagined “Last Supper”.
Andromeda is a cinematographic reality, created for questioning disparate, paradoxical iconographic models, criticizing modern society as if numb and frozen in front of the All-Seeing Eye-the camera’s eye. This also applies to music, such as the accordion music “Kanonen’s Song” and “The Ballad of a Soldier’s Wife” by Kurt Keil (co-author of Bertolt Brecht).
