Kala Azar Kala Azar

Janis Rafa / Greece, Netherlands / 2020 / 85 min / Greek

Visual artist Janis Rafa’s dystopic take on different types of relationships between humans and animals saturated with a sense of civilisation on the brink of collapse.

At the margins of a city somewhere in the south of Europe, a young couple start their day with their job routine: collecting deceased pets from homes and taking them to a pet crematorium. Outside of their job’s constraints, they also collect and cremate roadkill found during their drives. In this desolate environment, the couples’ stoic perseverance creates a space through which their love grows until the moment they have a car accident and cause a roadkill themselves…

“Coming from the art world and getting to know the cinematic language through art, I never felt the necessity to tell stories in a linear, clear way. In Kala azar, there is this scene of a band playing a requiem for the chickens, which could easily be a piece of video art. Instead, it became one of the forces driving me to make this film. I had to build up a narrative in order to accommodate it.” (Janis Rafa)
