Best Documentary FILMHELLENES Award - 13th GREEK FILM FEST CHICAGO 2012
Does the art of Karagkiozi dying? No, according to Athanassiou
family. Costas, Yannis, Argyris and Helen discovered the magic
of Karagkiozi in the theater
of George Haridimos, one of the great karagkiozopaichtes (the "Karagiozis" player). Drifted from this magic did not remain simple spectators.
Little by little they passed behind the curtain, they became assistants moving the Kolitiria figures (Karagiozis children) and after years of friction
came to embody themselves the heroes of their childhood.
