Director: Ulrike Ottinger
Cast: Magdalena Montezuma, Delphine Seyrig, Albert Heins, Claudio Pantoja
Germany, 1981, 126', color
German with Turkish subtitles

Cross-breeding time-skipping fantasy with outrageous masquerade, Ulrike Ottinger’s five garishly costumed tales recount a history of the world involving the Spanish Inquisition, traveling entertainers, Greek mythology, assorted bodily oddities, and general carnivalesque intrigue. The formidable Magdalena Montezuma stars as the intrepid traveler in all the shapeshifting and gender-bending tales. Reworking Virginia Woolf’s Orlando and Tod Browning’s Freaks, feminist pioneer Ottinger invents a colorful, boundary-busting theater of human difference and transformation.
