DIONYSUS THE RETURN

For 35 years since the first performance of the “Bacchae”, Theodoros Terzopoulos is considered one of the great theatrical innovators, because of his radically groundbreaking scenic idiom.
The film follows Terzopoulos from the village where he was born in a family of Greek refugees from the Black Sea, to the Berliner Ensemble , to Russia, China, the US, his theater base in Athens, to, finally, Delphi where it all begun.

THE TRACE OF TIME

The Trace of Time is a film about time, memory, nostalgia. A film about the beauty of archeology and excavation through the post-mortem portrait of archeologist Yannis Sakellarakis. A journey in search of a man who is no longer present, through the trace he left in the places he had been to, and the people he met. A cinematic excavation that brings to light an image through fragments and traces, just like archeology does.

WHEN ΤΗΕ SOUTH WIND BLOWS

“When the South Wind Blows” is a documentary film about the Mental Health Mobile Units in the North-Eastern and Western Cyclades Islands, implemented by the Association for Regional Development and Mental Health (EPAPSY).

Recording the course of the therapists group – at regular intervals – from Athens to difficult to reach places, far from urban areas, their meeting with people who experience the mental pain on a daily basis, their efforts made – always in cooperation with the local community – for the patients’ care and cure.

Α film that “harks” concerns, “captures” feelings, “explores” the patient’s position in the local society and “records” the coordinated efforts made by the community and the scientists for the “relief” from the pain caused by a the mental problem.

ZONES AND PASSAGES

Images of labour and unemployment in Greece, today. Athens, Perama, Thessaloniki, Skouries… “Block after block, the liquidation of the world goes on…” (René Char). Instants that show the disruption of what defined the world of labour until now but also the movements invented by the people who fight.

PSY

Madness means not understanding the other – sadness and pain are considered an extremity by our society – when I became ill, I felt fear and shame – I didn’t want my son to be locked away in a mental hospital – I wanted to be loved and understood. Words from people who have experienced mental suffering and committal. Confessions by people who do not hesitate to talk to us about their own special world. We met them at the new structures and networks that have been established in mental health field during the last few years, in order to reintegrate all these people in society and learn them to stand up for their lives and dreams.
