The Filmmaker-Physician: Gregory Markopoulos and the Restoration of Eniaios

The Filmmaker-Physician: Gregory Markopoulos and the Restoration of Eniaios

28 █ April █ 2022
12 █ 00 - 13 █ 30

Every four years since 2004, spectators have gathered in a field in the Peloponnese to watch newly restored portions of Eniaios—the silent 80-hour film that Gregory Markopoulos had fully edited but not yet printed when he died in 1992. Markopoulos believed in the curative properties of cinema and since his passing a dedicated circle of artists and supporters has committed to the preservation of his legacy and the promulgation of his vision for a humanistic cinema free from the conventions of the film industry. This event presents Robert Beavers’ 2016 short film Shared Table on the restoration work of Eniaios in Berlin and a digitized segment of Eniaios. The screenings will be accompanied by a discussion between Robert Beavers, film scholar and writer Rebekah Rutkoff, and members of the restoration team.

In collaboration with Temenos and the Institute for Ideas and Imagination
