Το αίμα των αγαλμάτων/The Bleeding Statues

Fiction, Greece, 1987, Digital Beta (35mm)

With Vera Krouska, Richard Svare, Yorgos Michalopoulos, Ilias Logothetis

A day before the inauguration of the archaeological museum in a small town, a woman archaeologist is troubled by strange nightmares. Meanwhile, the local officials are planning the opening ceremony, and the whole town is abuzz with excitement. In this setting, three young juvenile delinquents who have escaped from reform school appear in town and threaten to disrupt the event. The archaeologist will try to negotiate with them in an effort to save the human works of art, i.e., the statues, but also human dignity. Through an extraordinary iconography, Lykouressis creates an appealingly human scene, approaching with great sensitivity these young offenders of history.
