A Short Organon For The Hero
(Elise Florenty, Marcel Türkowsky, 2012, 14.5 min)
A story told through the eyes of a parrot. He alone remembers the metamorphosis of the modern figure of the Anti-Hero Anonymous. The narrative is deconstructed into areas of color, from which emerge "flashbacks" of fictional and documentary fragments filmed in Rio de Janeiro: scenes reenacting the Brazilian "cinema novo", traces of Amerindian sacrifices and recordings of urban occupation evoking the spirit of the "Theater of the Oppressed". The color – all at once skin, gesture, word, voice – structures as much as it breaks, creating a sort of vanishing punctuation, a punctuation of the memory operating on itself.
