ABOUT THE FILM
The cinematic poem RECYCLING MEDEA turns the Greek tragedy of Medea into an apt metaphor of the country’s current crisis. Based on the intensely dramatic and exceptionally emphatic opera Medea by composer Mikis Theodorakis as well as Renato Zanelli’s no less expressive ballet choreography, danced by exceptional prima ballerina Maria Kousouni, Asteris Kutulas spins surprising links between the choreographies of stage and street where, on Athens’ Syndagma Square, police and young protesters find themselves embroiled in bitter battle. The dynamics of sound and shifting celluloid layers transform RECYCLING MEDEA into a “visually stunning collage” (Süddeutsche Zeitung) that throws a spotlight on the dark reality of a society in decline.
On February 10th, RECYCLING MEDEA received the Cinema for Peace Award for the Most Valuable Documentary of the Year 2014. The foundation’s international jury awards this prize to films worthy of special attention due to their social and political relevance. RECYCLING MEDEA’s timely topicality won this highly artistic, idiosyncratic film the jury’s resounding approval. Among the Cinema for Peace gala’s guests and eulogists assembled at Berlin’s Konzerthaus: Catherine Deneuve, Ornella Muti, Sir Christopher Lee, Bianca Jagger, Pussy Riot, Hans-Dietrich Genscher, Uma Thurman, Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, Inna Schewtschenko (Femen) as well as countless of filmmakers from around the world.
