Domina Nocturna

Larissa Anzoategui, 2021, 74 mins

Our heroine wanders the streets, stumbling through various visions… The hallucinations are of an overwhelmingly beautiful vampiress who does not understand love, of Satan worshipers seeking eternal life who become trapped in a cycle of death, of an overconfident witch looking for the perfect recipe, and of a passion that survives beyond the grave….

A dreamlike goth opera, with homage to Rollin / Franco, and inspiration from Byron, Brazilian Álvares de Azevedo and Anzoategui’s passion for expressionist aesthetics.

With a 66.6% female crew this tale is so gothic, it could turn you into a bat!
