A king Lear | Super8, Animation, digital film | 2020
The reflection on the tragedy is combined with a family story in which the theme of the sacrifice of the youngest son is crossed, a theme linked to Lear and analyzed by Giuseppe Cocchiara in the writing The legend of King Lear: an essay on an ethnological interpretation of the novelistic group Sacrifice of the youngest son. The politics, the kingdom, the house, the mother or the justice? Probably Lear and Cordelia are the same person or have the same feelings. The film is thus also a diary seen through the dream of an old man, but it is also an opportunity to trace a family tree and its underlying themes.
