In 1947 the American School of Classical Studies at Athens commissioned a color movie entitled “Triumph Over Time” to accompany its fund raising campain. Directed by the archaeologist Oscar Broneer and producedd by numismatist Margaret Thompson, the 40-minute film shows Greece rebounding from World War II. Staff of the American School are shown resuming their research and preparing archaeological sites for presentation to post-war tourists.
The film also presents rare ethnographic material that captures Greece’s lost rural landscape, expecially in the area of Corinthia.
