«BASEADO NOS "DIÁLOGOS COM LEUCÓ” DO POETA ITALIANO CESARE PAVESE, ESTE FILME DESENROLA-SE NUM CENÁRIO ANALOGAMENTE MÍTICO. ARIADNE ACORDA NA PRAIA DA ILHA DE NAXOS, ABANDONADA POR TESEU, CUJO BARCO VELEJA JÁ LONGE DA COSTA. MAS UM ETERNO FIO LHE PRENDE O PULSO, SERÁ SINAL DE BOM AUGÚRIO OU MALDIÇÃO?» Ricardo Leite - realizador

Based on the "Dialogues with Leuco" from the italian poet Cesare Pavese, this short film happens on a analogously mythic setting. Ariadne wakes up in a beach on the Naxos island, abandoned by Theseus, whose boat sails away from the coast. But the eternal string binds her wrist, should it be a good presage or a curse?» Ricardo Leite - director

«After the adventure in the labirynth, Ariadne was abandoned by Theseus on the island of Naxos. It was there that Dionysus, on his return from India, made harvest of her beauty and set her among the constellations of heaven.» Cesare Pavese

«Had it been possible, I would gladly have done without all this mythology. But myth, it seems to me, is a language of its own, an instrument of expression. There is nothing arbitrary about it. It is a seedbed of symbolic forms, possessing like all languages, its own range of meanings which can be conveyed in no other way. » Cesare Pavese - introducing the book "dialogues with Leucó"
