ODOLA

Year of release: 2007

What makes modern an Antigone? To place it in New York or in a slaughter house? To make her sing rap or hip-hop? Odola means " the blood " in Basque, an allusion to a tragedy of current importance in which blood is present so much in wounds opened on dead or mutilated men like in the links of blood between the members of both sides. But what makes modern this Antigone is the conflict between reality and verbal construction, between the feelings of people and the demagoguery of system.
