ATHENES RHAPSODIE_Les Films de l’œil sauvage_Antoine Danis.jpg


An unknown man is meandering in a ruined city. He picks up the remainders of an ancient conflict that is not over. That will not end. This city is Athens, the set of the hangover of the European crisis. As we follow his steps, we hear voices, cries of condemnation and cries of hope by those who live here. Antoine Danis composes the polyphonic music of a heterodox city resonating throughout times. Following the rhythm of the organic editing, Athens morphs into a political tale. The rhapsody recovers its original meaning: that which announces the telling of an epic poem
