The Capsule

The Capsule

Athina Rachel Tsangari

Greece, 2012, 35 min., French/English/Greek/German/Turkish


Athina Rachel Tsangari was the only film director demanded by the DesteFashionCollection for a whole staging, conceived by the art collector Dakis Joannou and the creative director of Barneys New York, Dennis Freedman. The Capsule is the result. There, Tsangari exacerbates the subjects and formal options of his previous Attenberg. Here everything is abstract and openly fantastic: in a mansion on the top of a rock in the Cyclades, six girls receive the lessons of a woman who magnetically teach them the precepts of discipline and desire. It is a vampire allegory about the nonstop rites of female revitalization. The Capsule mixes real images with digital ones to represent more precisely that place of overlaps (wakefulness/sleep; animality/humanity; instinct/desire) that illuminate a new cycle.
