Hölderin's version of Sophocles' \"Antigone\" was adapted for the stage by Berthold Brecht and produced by the Straubs in Berlin's Schaubühne. Later, they made it into a film, shot in the antique theater of Segesta, Sicily. These are the layers of a text, which deduces a deep urgency and contemporary relevance in this politically topical film. Under a bright sunlit sky, an explosion of chaos, beauty and destruction takes place in front of the empty stone seats of the amphitheater. It is the summer in which America first attacked Iraq.
