The Great Attractor

The Great Attractor

Rita Figueiredo

Curator: Marta Mestre | Session: Reload

“The Great attractor” is a film based on the myth of Icarus, which explores the relationship between the human, its planet, and the star that illuminates them. Divided into three movements, the film combines moving images which range from the 19th to the 21st centuries, covertly addressing the relationship of cinema to light, the human curiosity about the circular motion of human and celestial bodies, and their destruction.
