To vlemma tou Odyssea - Ulysses' Gaze

17,01 €

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 Thus he embarks on a search that takes him across the war-torn Balkans, a landscape of spectral figures and broken dreams, right to the heart of darkness: a damaged film archive in Sarajevo where his quest ends. 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.

Ο Ελληνοαμερικανός σκηνοθέτης Α. επιστρέφει μετά από πολλά χρόνια στην πατρίδα, αναζητώντας τρεις μπομβίνες ανεμφάνιστου φιλμ των αδερφών Μανάκη, πιονέρων του κινηματογράφου στα Βαλκάνια. Η απεγνωσμένη αναζήτηση του φιλμ όπου καταγράφηκε το πρώτο βλέμμα πάνω σε τούτη τη χερσόνησο, γίνεται ταυτόχρονα και η αναζήτηση ενός βλέμματος από πλευράς του Α. (του Αγγελόπουλου κατ' επέκταση) που ψάχνει ένα καινούργιο τρόπο να ξαναδεί τον κόσμο. Η οδύσσεια του Α. δεν είναι μια ομηρική οδύσσεια. Όλα τα ομηρικά αντίστοιχα δεν αναγνωρίζονται παρά μόνο σαν σχήματα, σκορπισμένα στοιχεία στο μακρύ ταξίδι της σύνθεσης. Τώρα που οι ιδεολογίες κατέρρευσαν, τώρα που το σοσιαλιστικό όνειρο κύλησε στο ποτάμι της Ιστορίας, η περιπέτεια του βλέμματος απέμεινε η μόνη περιπέτεια να αφηγηθείς.
