Close Up

30 March 2023: Menelaos Karamaghiolis: Short Films


A selection of Menelaos Karamaghiolis’ short films from 1986 to today. In addition to feature-length documentary and fiction, Karamaghiolis’ practice encompasses artist films that often foreground stories of invisible, everyday heroes, located within the ongoing crises that define the social fabric of Greece. His short films weave together an underground, alternative narrative of the country’s history, told through unpredictable testimonies and apocalyptic images of a land in which the past and the present are perpetually clashing.
