Greece's most prominent film director of the post-1968 era, Theo Angelopoulos (1935-2012) was a mas ter cinema stylist. His investigations into history and politics, tyranny and resistance, and emotional devastation place him on equal footing with filmmakers like Andrei Tarovsky, Bernardo Bertolucci, and Wim Wenders. When he emerged on the world scene in the 1970's, with a distinctive style marked by carefully choreographed compositions and tracking shots, he epitomized the great tradition of international art cinema at the end of the twentieth century. All films are in Greek with English subtitles.
