Peripeteia

Peripeteia

Peripeteia is a fictional experimental film that imagines the lives of two sixteenth-century figures, a black man and woman, who were the focus of woodcuts by the German renaissance master Albrecht Dürer. Filmed entirely on location on the bleak moors, the film is a beautifully told story of alienation, loss and memory.
