2012 Talisman and other stories, 7′
A 6′ video made to accompany the exhibition of textile Artist Anna Kazakou for her recent work on the theme of talismans and charms. Booze Cooperativa, Athens, 11/2012.
2011 Nothing goes wasted, 45′
2010 I’ll do my best, 15′
Seeking for the chance to work in the gypsy community, I convinced my EBU and ERT producers of the “Challenges” youth European series to work with a protagonist of this area. Thus, for the 2010 episode I researched in a school at a rundown area only 40 minutes far from Athens which is a big gypsy ghetto. My belief that we do have things to learn from these people, never changed, only it became more informed and deeper.
2008 My first time, 52′
Pregnancy and childbirth become a series of extremely personal moments and when you experience them for the first time, you see things from a different point of view. You find yourself re-examining your fears and facing again everything you have so far taken for granted: your body, your health, your environment, the people close to you.
2005 Scarecrows, 52′
The theme of Scarecrows came into my life from a friend, textile artist who got indulged to them. While making a short video for her exhibition a whole documentary came to the surface for this peculiar and so varied object that bothers and protects. Farmers and collectors, painters and anthropologists, naif artists and people of the countryside, folk art historians, all testify a different point of view.
2004 Adriana in Athens, 30′
A girl’s hopes and fears as she grows towards adulthood and finishing school.We follow her to the choices she has to make, the stress she faces from school goals, the relationship to the family. This opportunity to work for ZDF series “Girls around the world” was a good chance to collaborate with producers from France and Germany who obviously see stories from a different point of view.
2002 Family Patterns, Interactive
During an early Interactive storytelling course at SAGAS I experimented with how form and content can join in an interesting result. Here, together with programmer S. Otterbein, we recorded a typical morning in a German family and then reconstructed it aiming at exploring how chance affects everyday life and how linear documentary storytelling can interact with repetition and multiple developments.
1998 Tough Pose, 45′
An insight to the nude models’ profession inside the Fine Art School of Athens, back in 1998. A delicate intrusion to an enclosed world: this of people being payed just for sitting still and considered by others, as “forms and shapes”.
1996 One man show, 10′
My very first documentary short. I was almost self tough and found it hard to combine my knowledge in history and art with training in camera and script continuity towards a goal of film directing. I directed this 10 minute short by instinct on a subject I felt for, while working at the Edinburgh Film Festival: my job was to keep the projectionists in good contact with the cinema downstairs. I chose my protagonist, Colin Enticknap, a well known fanatic of the profession, at the I.C.A. London, as he incarnated most of the behind-the-scenes projectionist characters I met during my research in London.
