ΤΟ ΦΩΤΟΓΡΑΦΕΙΟ ΤΟΥ ΜΠΑΜΠΑ ΜΟΥ

1 hour 14 minutes – 2022 – Documentary

Rare film material discovered in the basement of the renowned photographer Takis Tloupas at his home in Larissa, is a real treasure. The discovery gave the director the impetus to search for the man and his work. Guided by Tloupas’ daughter Vania, the crew record his artistic course, while at the same time forming an anthropogeography of Thessaly of the past century.

Reviews

The son of the Larissa carpenter and pioneering socialist Giorgos Tloupas, Takis Tloupas left behind a vast and culturally valuable archive of approximately 100,000 photographs, taken from the 1950s through the 1980s.

These images document, with rare artistic sensitivity the post-war reality of the Thessalian countryside and its people, serving as a documentary of an entire era, the aura of which documentary filmmaker Calliope Legaki seeks to capture through her lens.

Guiding the director are unpublished cinematic materials shot by Takis Tloupas himself and the vivid narration of his daughter Vania, thus opening up a poignant dialogue between past and present, transcending the lazy framework of a simple cine-portrait.
