Ulysses’ Gaze (To Vlemma tou Odissea) Greece, 1995 Theo Angelopoulos once confessed to an interviewer, “I would like to believe the world will be saved by the cinema.” Ulysses’ Gaze gives this hope form as a Greek filmmaker known as A (Harvey Keitel) becomes obsessed with finding lost reels of film shot by the Manaki Brothers, Yanaki and Milton, real-life film pioneers who made the first movies in the Balkans.

Pourdavoud Center Lecture Series: Arash Zeini

January 11, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
