A fragile encounter

Ενα μικρού μήκους ντοκιμαντέρ γεννιέται κατά τη διάρκεια ενός άλλου γυρίσματος. Πώς; Οταν η ματιά μας συναντά κάτι απρόοπτο, που δείχνει όμως να έχει τη δική του ιστορία και η κάμερα μπορεί να το καταγράψει, φαντασιώνοντας ότι αυτό που θα συμβεί έχει ζουμί, αισθήσεις και ένα πιθανό τέλος.FRAGILE POSTER

“I enjoyed very much your talking statue film.. beautiful, really.” Mark Reid, Head of Education, British film Institute

During a commissioned and quite predictable documentary shoot for the historical background of the town of Preveza in Western Greece, I found myself at the old, almost deserted museum inside the archaeological site of Nikopolis, the spectacular roman city of Emperor Augustus. Nothing particular was happening, we were there to record in the best possible way some statues and other stone artifacts of the period. Suddenly, a truck arrived and we were deprived of continuing our shooting. What could I do? I was puzzled and annoyed until a big box came out of the truck. So I started asking questions…and in 10 minutes time I had my only chance to tell my Director of Photography to raise the camera.

“Fragile” is a short story of a chance encounter with history. An encounter we think we have full control of , but we actually don’t. Here is the trailer.
