THEODORIAS, A NEW CITY
GREECE, 2015, 27'
  by AGON - Thursday, 28 July 2016

This is a tour of the Byzantine remains of Theodorias, the city founded and christened by the Byzantine empress Theodora; its churches, sculptures and above all its superb mosaics. These mosaics are unique in that they were created as early as the 6thcentury AD and combine Christian and pagan elements. All this represents a hitherto unknown aspect of our history. The archaeological findings presented in the film, which was shot in Libya, are currently at the mercy of religious fanatics, due to the political turmoil in the area.
