Athens, Return to the Acropolis(Athina, epistrofi stin Akropoli)

  • Dir: Theo Angelopoulos

  • Greece, 1983, Greek, 45mins, DCP

As part of a television series on the European cultural capitals, a different Athens is evoked under the lyrical lens of Angelopoulos, who captures the city he was born and raised with musings on its past and present, on national history and personal myth. Travelling from Acropolis to the Byzantine churches, the remains of the neo-classical homes, and searching for the houses in which he lived, his portrait of Athens is full of memories and inspirations, laced with the poetry of George Seferis and the paintings of Yannis Tsarouchis, and reminiscent of The Travelling Players .
