Requiem to a Shipwreck

Janis Rafa
Greece, Netherlands 2015 / 11’
documentary

A shipwreck lying off the coast of Greece is not just a decaying object, it is also a symbol whose meaning can be interpreted on several levels. It is both an element of the landscape and a monument to history. The wreck is unexpectedly honored in Requiem by the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Municipality of Mandras-Eidillias, which appears in the film.
