The Weird Wave of Greek Cinema: a Movement or a Moment?

At The Hellenic Centre on 16 Sep 2021

In this talk, Dr Marios Psaras revisits landmark films that constitute the main corpus of the so-called “Greek Weird Wave”, such as Yorgos Lanthimos’s Dogtooth (2009) and Alps (2011), Panos Koutras’s Strella (2009) and Athina-Rachel Tsangaris’s Attenberg (2010), reflecting on a reading of the “weird” as “queer” and identifying the thematic and formal disenchantment with traditional heteropatriarchal values and the representation that guided the national imaginary and experience. He then turns to later works, such as Tonia Mishialis’ Pause (2018), to evaluate the after-effects of the original wave.

Echoes of the Greek War of Independence on Stage.

Dr Maria Georgopoulou’s presentation focuses on two theatrical plays written by American playwrights (Mordecai Noah and John Howard Payne) that were performed in New York and in London in 1822. The protagonist of both plays is Ali Pasha (c. 1740 – 1822), who contributed decisively, if unwittingly, to the struggle of the Greeks for their independence primarily because of the effect he had on Lord Byron.
