In \"Black Sin\", the Straubs return to Hölderlin's \"Empedocles\" and the Etna. It is a dark political text and the characters that have remained walk on black ashes like ghosts of another world. It is a text of farewell and remembrance. At the end of the film, a strange woman replaces the vanished, conjures up \"the living spirit\" and wishes for \"a flood after the drought\". And at that point Hölderlin's fragment also falls silent.
