Screening of the film “Agelastos Petra/Mourning Rock” by the famous Greek director Filippos Koutsaftis. The screening of the film is organized by ICOMOS Cyprus, in collaboration with the Department of Antiquities. The director filmed the town of Eleusina over a period of ten whole years, documenting the life and occasionally the death of the ordinary inhabitants but also the changes that contributed to a mythical place (connected with the myth of the Goddess Demeter and the Eleusinian Mysteries) which was industrialized with catastrophic consequences for the surrounding area and its archaeological sites.
The screening will take place at the Artos Cultural and Research Foundation, 64 Ay. Omoloyiton Ave., Nicosia, at 20:30.
