This European premiere explores a world where guilt and responsibility disappear under the shadows of impunity and silence.
An English teacher sees a woman on the underground and decides she will become his wife and the mother of his children. He takes over her life and when she tries to escape, all doors close before her. Once re-captured he abuses her again, over and over.
Histoire d’amour explores a world where guilt and responsibility disappear under the shadows of impunity and silence. In a black and white universe, this is a love story overwhelmed by asphyxia, perversion, alienation and obsession told intimately from within a tortured mind.
Through a seamless blend of live action and cinematic projection, Chile’s Teatrocinema returns to the Festival with a chilling and brutal tale that marks the third in a trilogy utilising techniques of theatre, films, comics, animation, photography and music.
