1980 / color / silent / 1S / 35' 06
The film GRAAL goes (as well as all the films which precede it) toward an open and avowed paganism, in which pagan force and magic imbue all the subjects at all times. (...) This is not about «the» Holy Grail and its legend but about the concept of the Grail, taken in a larger sense as a universal archetype: abbreviation, metaphor of the cosmos. In fact, achievement. That is what the Grail is: the achievement's completion. January and August 1982, notebook 4. In Teo Hernandez: trois gouttes de mezcal..., 1997, Pompidou Center.
