Towards the Temenos: Gregory Markopoulos and Robert Beavers

For this anniversary year of the Thessaloniki Ιnternational Film Festival, we pay tribute to two key American experimental filmmakers, Gregory J. Markopoulos and Robert Beavers. The four film programs in the tribute present rare 16 mm screenings of Markopoulos’s acclaimed films from the postwar era to the 70s anc four films by Beavers offering a look into the lives and the daily imagery of Markopoulos’s and Beavers’ lives. These seminal film poems, which are little known to Greek audiences, will be accompanied by an exclusive Greek preview of film writer Georgia Korossi’s film Devotion, a short documentary about the 2016 edition of Temenos – the quadrennial event premiering Markopoulos’s monumental film Eniaios.
We’re pleased to welcome Robert Beavers and special
guests to the Festival.
