Cineteatro Louletano

Tickets: 8€

Homo Sacer has its origins in the Roman law used to designate those who never had or no longer had an identity and thus surrendered their fatum to the Gods: an Oedipus who, after gouging out his eyes, wanders off at the mercy of anyone, a Roman soldier who, in battle, in the pursuit of victory, throws himself into enemy territory because the likelihood of returning is slim, the Calon who, at the time of the transition to industrial society, were labelled and persecuted with the epithet of having an aversion to work. They are faces of oblivion that melt away. They are spectral bodies, the power of those who are there but are invisible.

Drawing on Roswitha Scholz's book "Homo Sacer and the Gypsies" as a reference point, Maria Gil, actress and activist, joins Teresa V. Vaz in a reflection on antigypsyism, which is both anthropological and political.
