ULYSSES' PORTRAIT

of LEITÃO João Cristovão

PORTUGAL, 2015, 00:05:30

Production : LEITAO João Cristovãto
Genre : Video art
Keyword : Portrait, Homage, Experimental, Editing

Summary :
Ulysses’ Portrait is a giddy journey through time and through literature. A journey where Ulysses is entrapped by the mechanism that is the loop, which operates at a narrative level, at a spatio-temporal level (given the use of a single sequence shot) and at a visual level (by means of the constant reuse of the same imagery material).

After all, Ulysses’ Portrait is nothing more than an act of questioning human identity when confronting it with the possibility of time’s circularity and with its objective and subjective durations. Ulysses is Ulysses. However, that doesn’t mean that he isn’t, simultaneously, Cervantes, Pierre Menard, Alexander the Great, Caesar, Homer, Chekhov, Nietzsche, Borges and, undoubtedly, myself as well.
