Short documentary (2013)

Perspectives  is a portrait of the theatre director and actor, Kostas Kazakos, who juxtaposes two seemingly different historical periods of modern Greece:
The Greek junta of 1967 -1974
The Greek Financial Crisis of 2009 –

Although the Financial Crisis is still an ongoing process, the art of theatre has its own language to communicate with the spirit of the time. It also reminds to its audience that a world without memory is led to oblivion.
Kostas Kazakos’ perspective stands at the centre of this documentary.

Perspectives was also the final project for my MA degree in the School of Arts of Brunel University.

Additional information

The short documentary below, titled 'Frequency Waves', sheds a bit more light on the historical context of 'Perspectives'.


Documentary (2014)

A chronicle of major historical events from 1958 to 1974 in Greece. The piece employs archival material in order to address the sociopolitical tendencies of diametrically opposed forces within the society. The title 'Frequency Waves' derives from the fact that the rebellious students of the National Technical University of Athens in 1973, operated a pirate station in the frequency of 1050 megacycles.
