Abstract

The Philippi Festival and the theatrical group Kouinta Theater Productions research and penetrate into the deep meanings of Dionysios Solomos’ emblematic poem “The Cretan”. The study led to the creation of a film, where this narrative poem is presented through a dynamic coupling of different arts. The focus is on video art and the art of theatre. A lyrical monologue of a Cretan hero, with a background of historical events of the Greek Revolution. And concepts of paramount importance to man, such as the struggle, the vision of freedom, love, death, redemption that never comes through the metaphysical concerns of the hero.
