Instead of director’s note

... However - who knows - maybe when someone resists without hope, maybe there human history begins, perhaps there begins the beauty of man among the rusty iron and bones of bulls and horses, perhaps there someone resists hopeless among ancient tripods, where still some little laurel burns and smoke rises in fading in the sunset like the golden fleece, where someone resists, perhaps there, human history begins.

Yannis Ritsos


... Much is said about the causes that led
the Trojans and the Greeks to conflict
in 1400 B.C., in Ionia.
Our most modern theories talk about the habit
of looting that we still have today.
Organised gangs of countries, companies, kings,
besieged, burnt and grabbed
herds, treasures, women, slaves.
Yannis Yfantis
