Theofilos-Kassialos: two naïf painters
GREECE, 2008, 30'
  by AGON - Monday, 7 November 2011

The film features the basic elements of the personalities of the two painters and the social and historical background of their era and of the land that shaped it. The two painters have a common thematology (heroes of Hellinism, battle scenes, popular characters from folklore readings, popular heroes, scenes of family or religious life, mythical animals and birds) that unites the primitive painting of both Greek and Cyrpiot Hellenism.
Through their life and work, one can understand the unity of Greek and Cypriot Art and the collective consciousness of the two people.
