With live Introduction by Director Aurelia Mengin
Fornacis is a sensory and visual road movie that plunges the viewer into a sulphurous dramatic romance between two women, Anya and Frida.
Obsessed by the death of her betrothed Anya in a world of confusion, in which Frida's memories mix with reality, there is a permanent oscillation between the solitude of reality and the surrealism of thwarted desires.
Recalling the experimental and evocative imagery of Jean Rollin’s 1970s vampire cinema, Fornacis remains an evanescent and poetic film.
