A Mythology of Pleasure

A Mythology of Pleasure

Really, there used to be a lot more action back then! And even more before that. And at the beginning of time? One dares not imagine what was happening then. Filmmaker Lara Rodríguez Cruz and her camerawoman and co-writer Jule Katinka Cramer have imagined it anyway, and done so in the brightest colours and finest words. It’s a matter of speculation whether our Lord Almighty, had he known how much fun his heathen ancestors had at work, would have been just a tiny bit envious.
