We had the pleasure to host a talk by Maria Paradeisi, associate professor of History and Theory of Cinema at the Department of Communication, Media and Culture of Panteion University in Athens. Maria talked about the emergence of the New Greek Cinema and its relation to the feminist film theory during a period of political and social turmoil in Greece. By deconstructing and analyzing the two female characters starring in the films “Reconstruction” by Theo Aggelopoulos (1970) and “Anna’s matchmaking” by Pantelis Voulgaris (1972), she discussed how their portraits reflected the womens’ role in society back then.Thank you Maria for bringing up issues that feel more relevant than ever these days, and for reminding us that we should always stand up for our rights!
