Megaris

by Guglielmo D'Aniello Experimental Italia/Italy 2008 8'

Parthenope, one of the sirens of Greek mythology, who gave her name to the ancient Greek settlement of present-day Naples, is found atop a garbage pile, her face horribly disfigured. Surrounding her are heaps of refuse left in the aftermath of the garbage crisis that struck the region of Campania. The scene changes to a theater stage: at table is a band of raucous dinner guests: politicians, priests, public officials, Camorra clansmen, intellectuals and plain citizens, eager to devour what turns out to be poor Parthenope. Starting in a provoking Bunuel-like surrealistic vein, Megaris takes a novel allegoric approach to reveal the drama of Neapolitan reality.
