gets a new look !
A., a Greek filmmaker living in exile in the USA, returns to Florina where he was born for the screening of a film that he has made. But A. is looking for something else: the mythical reels of the first film shot by the Manakis brothers. From Korçë, in Albania, to Skopje, in Macedonia, from Bucharest to Constantza in Romania, along the Danube to former Yugoslavia, Belgrade and then Sarajevo, A. hunts down the Manakis footage. He travels in space and memories, between the present and history, the past and current affairs...
"The journey of a man (Harvey keitel) in the modern-day Balkans. The balkans of fanatical conflicts and war. A journey that is also a quest. The pretext for this odyssey of a modern Ulysses : the search for reels of a short film from the beginning of the century, never developed, directed by the brothers Yannakis and Miltos Manakis, film pioneers in Greece and the Balkans. The quest for a lost gaze and a lost innocence !"
