Villamediana revises a landscape we all have been through once: memory –only here it is conceived as a mystery, a skein of images, a labyrinth. A strange kind of bull lives in the labyrinth: it’s the Minotaur. Armed with all the haste and despair in the world, the director reinvents a form of memory in which all images seem destined to clash against each other, devour each other, one slipping into the other, maybe without ever been completely understood. The film forces the coexistence of two different series of shots that constantly fight from each side of the screen. Old film footage, impersonal recordings, video, film, still pictures, drawings, engravings: diverse modulations on the world use voice over as a biographical element capable of sustaining that deranged system –like a detective, or a baffled ghost who rolls on an infinite cumulus of dispersed fragments. Behind a certain playful shine, Cábala caníbal features the brutal estrangement of those who gave up on images as guarantees of any kind of undisputable truth. DO
