Meteora, Greece: A trip to the Byzantine Monasteries

Arriving at Meteora with the speed and force of the fiery wind that made the Apostles speak all the languages of the world, we approach the Monastery of the Holy Trinity. There, everything becomes calm. Our Abbot guides us through one of the most beautiful Byzantine monuments in the world on the day the monastery celebrates.

Directed by Dimitris Yatzouzakis

D. Yatzouzakis was born in Athens. He moved to Venice in 1980 to study Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts. In 1983 he won a scholarship from “Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia” in Rome, where he studied film-directing under Gianni Amelio, Marco Leto and Furio Scarpelli.
