  • [01] "Dust of Time" presentation

    World renowned Greek filmmaker Theo Angelopoulos gave a press conference at the "Megaron- Athens Concert Hall on Monday regarding the release of his new movie "The Dust of Time". This is to be screened in Greek cinema theaters on February 12, as well as in the Berlin International Film Festival. The official avant premiere will be held on Feb. 11 at the "Megaron" - where one of the scenes with the lead actor Willem Dafoe have been shot. "We live in a period of closed horizons. A landscape in the mist in a world that has no direction," Angelopoulos said in the press conference.

    "The Dust of Time" tells the story of a 50-year-old filmmaker, who films the story of his parents and their frustrated love during the Cold War, at the same time charting the course of the epic events that marked the second half of the 20th century. The cast also includes Irene Jacob, Michel Piccoli and Bruno Ganz. Angelopoulos' next film has the provisional title "Tomorrow" and will be the conclusion of the trilogy that opened with the "Weeping Meadow" (2004) and "The Dust of Time"
