Faust 3: Candida Albacore

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

Just as the word "Idyll" of Faust's Part 2 is rooted in the Greek "idein" / "to see," so is "Candida" in "candidatus," as used in "the white robed army of martyrs" of the "Te Deum," as well as "Albicare" / "to be white" or "Albicore" out of the Portuguese (of Arabic origin) designating a kind of tunny (or white tuna): thus, Faust's 3 is white / white as well as (from sugar's "white") candy, and fish: it is the modern Walpurgisnacht to Faust, but the daydream of "his" Emily: it exists that a woman have, finally, something of her ritual included in the myth of Faust ... and that "muthos" / "mouth" become a vision.
