11th THESSALONIKI DOCUMENTARY FESTIVAL - Images of the 21st Century
MARCH 13 – 22, 2009

A number of 42 Greek films will be showcased in the 11th Thessaloniki Documentary Festival - Images of the 21st Century, allotted between the Official, Panorama and Greek Television sections. These are the most recent films from the local documentary production and are projects that have been funded and produced in various ways: by means of documentary production companies, the Greek Film Center and the Greek Public Television (ERT S.A.), private broadcasting stations and also independently.


Fotos Lamprinos is a Greek filmmaker, journalist, author and film archivist. He studied film in Moscow during the 1960s and is renowned for his significant archiving work: from 1970 to 1973 he thoroughly researched 22 governmental and private film archives in Europe and the United States, in order to find and to register newsreel material referring to Greece (from 1911 to 1971). In 1973 Lamprinos collaborated on the script for Theo Angelopoulos’ film The Traveling Players. He directed over 250 documentaries for the Greek State TV from 1975 to 1997, many of which put to use his extensive archive research. Lamprinos also shot a series of 20 documentaries on the disintegration of the Soviet Union, as well as numerous other films, amongst which his only fiction film, Doxobus (1987), referring to an 14th-century Byzantine province and the civil war of that period. From 1993 to 2003 Lamprinos taught the course “Relationships between History and Cinema” at various universities in Greece. The director will attend the 11th TDF to present his work. Eleven of his short and feature films will be screened on the occasion of the Tribute.
