THE MAN WITH THE ANSWERS
A Greek former diving champion and an eccentric German backpacker take an adventurous road-trip of rediscovery from Bari to Bavaria. THE MAN WITH THE ANSWERS is a picture-postcard travelogue about the familial ties that bind, the boys that catch our eye, and the twists and turns that lead us home.
A palace ravaged by blood. A slaughterhouse holds all the passions of mankind. A woman, wandering the premises of an abandon slaughterhouse, a reminiscent of her palace, ‘bleeds out’ sins and stereotypes, questioning the story granted to her: When Agamemnon returns from the Trojan War, Clytemnestra murders him in revenge for the sacrifice of their daughter Iphigenia. Years later, their son, Orestes comes home to avenge his father’s death.
From a dystopian present to an expressionistic past and vice versa, in a re-tell of the myth, “Drained” abolishes both the victimization and demonization of her female self. In her vigorous, yet lyrical monologue, Clytemnestra puts before the audience eternal moral questions: Is self-justice an act of righteousness? Does revenge bring salvation? Can an assassination be forgiven?
While the circle of blood of the Atreides family acts as an archetype, “Drained”, narrates the timeless struggle of a woman who fights for clear consciousness existence and redemption against ruthless, vicious time.
