Kala azar describes of a place that cannot sustain animal life any longer. In a big city somewhere in the south of Europe, a couple takes care of dead animals and abandoned roadkill as an act to give meaning to their life. Kala azar is a meditation on the paradox of life-circles among beings of different species. A film about existence, on the boundaries between living and dead, human and non-human.

A bizarre, but compelling, look at the human animal, exploring different ways in which grief can be dealt with, and also exploited, Kala Azar isn’t entirely successful, but it’s definitely another film that feels very much like a Greek success story coming along in the wake of the films of Yorgos Lanthimos.
