Alexis Damianos doesn't need introductions. His three films traverse nearly forty years and have indelibly marked new Greek cinema. His work begins in 1966 with Until the ship sails and with this film, unfolds the story of modern Greek cinema. 1971 was the year of Evdokia, the best, according to many, Greek film of all time. Finally in 1995, Damianos released Eniochos- the charioteer the most awaited comeback of Greek cinema. Harsh poetics, social infiltration, historical speculation centered on man, characterize the singular work of 83 year-old Alexis Damianos.
