Inspired by Joan of Castile (1479-1555) and her episode of life spent in grief and isolation, Anastatica explores mental and physical conditions under institutional concepts of control and oppression through an expressive cinematic form shot on Super 8mm film. In an improvisational performance distinguished by a strong sense of space and design, the film creates surreal worlds between life and death, dream and poetry.
