Yorgos Mavropsaridis raised the curtain of the event by saying the following: “I would like to explain the influence this film had on me. I watched it in 1980, at Pallas cinema in Athens. The reason I chose it is because I immediately connected it with the editing process that refers to the present of the viewer who watches the screen, in the sense that we create the present in our own mind”.
