Riding and swimming in the river become in this very personal film in combination with the music of Meredith Monk symbols of the fight against ovarian cancer. "Freedom is a galloping horse with a mane and tail flying in the wind. Freedom is the eye and consciousness with which I follow the flow of expressive movement. Freedom means discovering the unknown on my horse and observing with an alert eye how the world is constantly renewing itself. "A Horse Is not a Metaphor" is about the power to live with all your senses and absolutely freely in the present." (Barbara Hammer)

The "prodigal son" doesn't have it easy. His father is respected and wealthy, his oldest brother is a well-off businessman, and his youngest brother is still searching for himself. But he, the middle son, ran away from home and got nowhere. Will the family give him a second chance? Disoriented, he stands on an abandoned platform in the middle of a green idyll: the prodigal son wants to go home to his family. Many years ago he robbed his father of his fortune and went out into the world. He searched himself, but did not find himself - and used up his father's money completely. Even before he arrives home, the young man on the railway track in the middle of nowhere is confronted with accusations. He tries to get into conversation with an old guard and tells his story. "A cruel world," it breaks out of the gatekeeper. He insults the young man for his irresponsibility and chases him out of his hut. The parable of the prodigal son was told for the first time in the Bible: The homecomer is embraced by his father, while his brother reproaches him. In the film by the Armenian director duo, the father also forgives his returning son, but the two brothers and the friends of the family form a wall of accusations, which the returnee tries not to answer. The staging of the film resembles a play: long picture shots, the camera concentrates on the faces of the actors, music is only used very sparsely. The slowness of the film underlines the speechlessness within the family, which despite the efforts of the elderly father seems indissoluble. IP
An opulent version of the legendary figure of Countess Báthory, who, as the greatest murderer in the history of mankind, even made it to the Guinness Book of Records.

She is said to have bathed in the blood of the victims and pulled the flesh off their bodies with her teeth while they were still alive. But is all this really true? In four centuries, no evidence has been found. The story of this film, in contrast to the legend, tells of a defenseless widow. She had more possessions and wealth than the king himself and so she became the victim of an intrigue initiated by the highest authority.
