Lamaland (Teil I)

Mexico, Switzerland / 2018 / 35 mm / Mono / 92’
French Premiere

In Paraguay, in Nueva Germania, two brothers (or twin brothers, maybe?) are the only descendants of a utopian community imagined by Wagner and founded by the husband of Elisabeth Forster, Nietzsche’s sister, whom he nicknamed, quite nastily, “Llama”, after the Andean animal with the foul spit. The only traces left of this epic dream of an Aryan settlement are those two characters, who look more like Beckettian figures than like heroes. The film documents their daily, almost silent movements, to underline both the astonishment and dark humour of History.
