Story of My Death

Story of My Death (Història de la meva mort)

A film by Albert Serra 

Catalan maverick auteur Albert Serra (director of Liberte) has established himself as one of the boldest and most unique voices in contemporary cinema, with his beguiling work often drawing on the history of literature and art.

Winner of the prestigious Golden Leopard award for Best Film at the Locarno International Film Festival in 2013, Story of My Death is a baroque reflection on pleasure and erotic desire dramatised from an imagined meeting between the ageing Casanova and Count Dracula.

Serra’s deliciously eccentric film mines history to blend the mythical with the everyday, charting the transition from the Age of Enlightenment to that of Romanticism – marking a clash between an eighteenth century of rationalism and sensuality against a nineteenth century founded upon repression and violence.
