27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Albert Serra
original title: Roi Soleil
running time: 61 min.
The film is a montage of the filmmaker’s installation featuring the actor Lluís Serrat as King Louis XIV posing his death agony for full seven days in front of visitors at the Graça Brandão gallery. The stertorous monarch spends most of his time rolling on the floor in the austere gallery interiors lit by red light.
Albert Serra (1975) is a distinguished representative of so-called slow cinema. Documentary elements are found in his film The Lord Has Worked Wonders in Me (El senyor ha fet en mi meravelles, 2011, Ji.hlava IDFF 2016).
