In search of Orpheus01

Film showing and Q&A with the director Tzeli Hadjidimitriou

In Search of Orpheus examines the mythical story of Orpheus and his connection with the island of Lesvos. It follows, in a poetic way, the traces of the mythical musician on this island, where, according to legend, his head and his lyre were washed up on the shore.

We ask ordinary people what they know about Orpheus, finding that each person has modified the story according to their own imagination and experiences.  This is the "intangible cultural heritage" of Greece, the everyday culture of ordinary people, which defines our collective memory and identity. We also, incidentally, encounter the famous Chinese lyric poetess Lan Lan.
