Screening of Bouboulina

Premiere of Bouboulina (Kostas Andritsos, 1959) with English subtitles with an introduction by Dr Lydia Papadimitriou.

Starring Irene Papas in one of her early, but highly influential roles, Bouboulina is the only biopic of the notorious heroine and one of the relatively few historical films on the Greek Revolution. A low-budget production and a labour of love for its unassuming director-editor Kostas Andritsos, the film presents a chronological account of Laskarina Bouboulina’s life focusing on her free spirit, her mental and physical strength, and her dedication to the cause of national liberation.

Organised by the Centre for Hellenic Studies at King’s College London, the Society for Modern Greek Studies and supported by The Hellenic Centre
