“In Redoubt, the new film by acclaimed artist and director Matthew Barney, creator of the Cremaster Cycle, the myth of Diana and Actaeon unfolds in Idaho’s majestic Sawtooth Mountains, with Diana played by real-life sharpshooter Anette Wachter. She’s accompanied by two nymphs on a wolf hunt (one, Eleanor Bauer, choreographed the film’s gravity-defying movements); Barney is the Engraver/forest ranger – stealthily etching their movements onto copper plates. Wordless physical action, choreography and spectacular cinematography create a dreamlike logic.
The title Redoubt can refer to both a provisional military fortification, and a defensive, isolated psychological position – both evoked by the film’s setting in a vast Idaho wilderness. ‘Mr. Barney’s most engrossing film in over a decade… speaks directly to contemporary American themes: the place of the gun, the fate of the environment and the fantasies and paranoias of those who turn their back on constitutional government and American society’ (Jason Farago, The New York Times).” –Film Forum
Note: no animals were harmed in the making of the film.
