In-person special preview screening of Marianna Economou’s The Greek Bar Jacket

Poster 71a998fd6c poster

A special screening of acclaimed director Marianna Economou’s The Greek Bar Jacket, in collaboration with the LMU Caloyeras Center.

Marianna Economou’s new documentary traces the making of the DIOR Cruise 2022 collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri, which celebrated the eternal beauty of Greece and was unveiled in a spectacular show in the Kallimarmaro Stadium in Athens last June.

The film offers an intimate view into the conceptualization and realization of the Greece-inspired collection.
Economou traveled across the country to visit the Greek artisans who collaborated with Chiuri. The result is an intimately personal exploration of the creative forces and influences that contributed to the collection, as well as a celebration of the specialized savoir-faire of both the local Greek artisans and the French fashion house’s own ateliers.

This special event will also exhibit Myrto Papadopoulos’ spectacular photography that gives us a behind-the-scenes look at The Greek Bar Jacket and the Greek artisans who worked with the Dior house.

Motherland I See You Poster

MOTHERLAND, I SEE YOU: an initiative dedicated to salvaging, preserving and screening films from the diverse Greek heritage of the 20th Century, in the context of the 200-year anniversary since the Greek Revolution.

An initiative of the Hellenic Film Academy, under the Auspices of the “Greece 2021” Committee, sponsored by the National Centre of Audiovisual Media & Communication (grand sponsor), the Greek Film Centre, the Athens Epidaurus Festival and the Thessaloniki International Film Festival. With the support of the Greek Film Archive and Finos Film.

We hope to see you at the movie theaters so we can discover and rediscover shadows, brilliant flashes, colors and sound together – a country as it was lit, narrated and redefined by the unique gaze of Greek 20th Century filmmakers.
