Yarasa
(Yarasa)

by Ayaz SALAYEV

“My film is about death : death as a film, subject, death via film and the death of film. The heroine dies in a movie house. She dies because of her love of cinema. She watches the screen absent-mindedly, as does her blind killer whose blindness also results from his love of cinema. The blind man shoots in the direction of the sound, of her despairing cry. He became blind when talking pictures first appeared. The main characters in the film are attracted to each other, which brings them inexorably toward death. He, an older man, an academic and specialist, sees her simply as life without the curse of the image. She, in turn, loves his intellect, his erudition. The fate of my protagonists is just as tragic as the attempt to unite art and life. For the hero, possessing the woman who flees from him means possessing life itself. But he can only capture her by killing her. The means she uses to escape him involve the different arts, which the film has divided into chapters : Visual And, Theatre, Film, Architecture, Literature.”
