LAMALAND (Part II: Dance of Death)
A film written, produced and directed by Pablo Sigg
2020 / 93 min. / BW / German
The dark fable of the end of the last two survivors of the Aryan colony founded by Friedrich Nietzsche's sister in the Paraguayan jungle continues. After destroying each other in the first part of LAMALAND, the Schweikhart brothers are reunited in an underworld analogous to the world, where the struggle between master and servant, love and discord, day and night, darkness and light still persists.
Pablo Sigg has produced, written and directed the LAMALAND cycle for a decade. This three-film saga stars Friedrich and Max Josef Schweikhart, direct descendants of the Nueva Germania colony, a utopian community first imagined by Richard Wagner in 1880.
In 1886, Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche (nicknamed «Llama» –Lama in German– by her brother Friedrich), founded Nueva Germania near the southern Amazon. Friedrich Nietzsche proposed to call a piece of that lost Paradise «Lamaland».
