To Each Their Voice: Theo Angelopoulos & Nikos Panayotopoulos

ΘΟΔΩΡΟΣ ΑΓΓΕΛΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ & ΝΙΚΟΣ ΠΑΝΑΓΙΩΤΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ: Ο ΚΑΘΕΝΑΣ ΚΑΙ Η ΜΟΥΣΙΚΗ ΤΟΥ

1 hour 16 minutes – 2022 – Documentary

In the mid-80s, Aegokeros Publishing House intended, without success, to publish a magazine themed around film and the theater. The main topic of each issue would be a conversation, in the form of an interview, between two auteurs, either of cinema or theater.

Theo Angelopoulos and Nikos Panayotopoulos were chosen by the editorial board for the first issue. The two were indisputably the key figures of Greek cinema at the time, and they were also placed among the pioneers of New Greek Cinema.

In this context, Antonis Kokkinos and Yannis Soldatos recorded a three-hour interview between Theo and Nikos, on a summer evening at Angelopoulos’s house in the area of Mati, by the sea of Attica.

The interview brought to the fore their shared trajectory, but also the different routes which they followed from one point onwards. Beginning with their years in Paris and moving to their spectacularly failed attempt to prepare Angelopoulos’s first film, the short film “The Forminx”, Panayotopoulos worked as an assistant director.

Thirty-five years later, this previously unreleased conversation was enhanced with tapes and transcripts. As the two protagonists have passed away, this conversation stands as a valuable piece of documentation of the creators’ perspective on their own work, both the existing and the future, as well as a thorough insight into New Greek Cinema and world cinema by and large.
