AGAMEMNON’S DAUGHTER

  by AGON - Wednesday, 13 July 2016

“Agamemnon’s Daughter” is part of a larger project entitled “Iphigenia: Book of Change”. The film was shot in southern California and was edited in New York City. The project was inspired by the 1977 film Iphigenia, directed by the Greek filmmaker Michael Cacoyannis; by the plays Iphigenia among the Taurians, and Iphigenia at Aulis written by Euripides (BCE 411); and by the various stories and memoirs of contemporary women who have survived captivity. There is not a single story, nor is there a linear narrative; rather, Agamemnon’s Daughter is an experimental and multi layered audio/visual performance surrounding various mythologies of Iphigenia and exploring themes of captivity and freedom.
