A chat with Alexander Zeldovich, director of Medea, in competition at the 74th edition of Locarno Film Festival. Zeldovich tells us about the intentions of his film, the first meeting with the lead actress Tinatin Dalakishvili and the greatness of a character that depicts the elusive and mysterious female nature.

Medea : For the sake of her future with the father of her two children, Medea commits a crime so grave that he withdraws from her. Feeling betrayed for having paid an enormous price for happiness, she tries to fill the void with sex and religion; but resentment drives her to revenge.
