To vlemma tou Odyssea 1995
A Greek-American filmmaker, known simply as «A», returns to his hometown in northern Greece for a screening of his latest controversial film. His real reason for coming back, however, is to track down three long-missing reels of film by Greece's pioneering Manakia brothers who in the early years of cinema traveled through the Balkans, ignoring national and ethnic strife and recording ordinary people, especially craftsmen, on film. Their images, he believes, hold the key to lost innocence and essential truth, to an understanding of Balkan history. Did these primitive, never developed images really exist? If so, where are they? From Korita, Albania, to Skoplje, Macedonia, Bucharest to Costanza, Romania, down the Danube to what used to be Yugoslavia, from Belgrade to war-torn Sarajevo, A pursues his search for the Manakia brothers’ pictures. Along the way, he encounters his own history, the Balkan past, and women whom he could love. He hopes to find, in these forgotten pictures, the innocence of a virgin gaze.
Like a latter-day Ulysses he finds his «Ithaca», the missing, undeveloped film and is at last united with the work of the Manakia brothers... his gaze communes with theirs and another journey begins.
