Avoiding the stereotypes of a commodified landscape, the five directors whose works make uo this program offer a view of Greece that is not sellable as a product.
Either filming the scars of History that are still inscribed in the country, or capturing the traces left behind by the unfulfilled promises of prosperity, or documenting an antisystemic look on Greece’s sprawling capital (a gaze on Athens belonging to the Outsider – to the Young, the Stranger, the Immigrant) – these five films succeed in presenting to the audience a collection of Greek panoramas that are not adulterated by the distortions produced when they are viewed through a touristic lens.
The program was curated by Interferences team.
