HAIL ARCADIA!
GREECE, 2015, 89'
  by AGON - Wednesday, 20 July 2016

Capturing moments in the infinite line of time, depicting fractional images of a divinely inspired Nature, interweaving mythological and historical accounts, gleaning fragments and whispers the cinematic gaze attempts to record the identity of a place that confronts and is confronted with the great philosophical questions of life.
The temple of Athena Alea, Gregory Markopoulos’s shrine, the harvest, the beautiful woman of Mouchli, the cherry orchard, the New Martyr Demetrios, are nothing but fragments of this place –of Tegea –recounting the adventure of life.
“Hail Arcadia’’. A journey to a place that is haunted, even today, by the myth of an enigmatic epigraph.
