cinema, Ελλάδα/Greece, 1975, 97 ́, 35mm, Έγχρ./Color, Με ήχο/Sound

In Vio-grafia—with the pioneering use of the rostrum camera, editing and color—the gravures of Chumy Chumez, provide a basis on which a narrative commentary and music are poetically correlated. A confession of the historical and mythic subject of our era and world is reconstituted, of a world which is dominated both by the spectacle and the audiovisual. The film introduced to Greece expanded cinema, since in itself it takes the form of a Lamposcope projection—a kind of a projector of painted glass slides from the 19th century—and with the simultaneous use of a unique frame, of 1:2.75 dimensions.
