Dark Matters

When: Thu., April 2 2015

Story of My Death puts two iconic figures up against one another as an aging Casanova (Vicenc Altaio) meets a bloodthirsty Dracula (Elisea Huertas) in 18th century Switzerland. In a class-of-cultures film, Story of My Death is described as “the portrayal of the eclipse of Enlightenment rationality by the violent forces of Romanticism.” Director Albert Serra paints a very bleak, mute and mysterious picture with this film, giving the film a real feel of the era it is presenting. Story of My Death plays tonight at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque at 8. Tickets are $9 (Harp)
