Medea Louder Than Any Thought

Essay Film, Greece, 2013, DCP

Direction: Nikos Grammatikos

With Yukiko Krontira, Antonis Antoniou,Vangelis Mourikis

Based on the Euripides’ acknowledgement that “affect and passion is more powerful than reason,” Nikos Grammatikos plunges, quite arrogantly, as he admits, into the tragedy of Medea, in order to deal with a personal loss. Filming without a script (for the first time), and after a five-year “battle,” Grammatikos gives a film in which the dividing lines between fiction, documentary and research are constantly shifting. The Chorus is made up of students from the “Delos” drama school and the film’s advisor is classicist Nikos H. Hourmouziadis, a professor of philology at Thessaloniki’s Aristotle
University, who also appears in the film. Part of the shooting took place on Salamis, where Grammatikos was born.
