Focusing on Angelopoulos' cinematic vision, this text provides a contextual study that attempts to demonstrate the quintessentially Greek nature of the director's work. The book situates the director in the context of over 3000 years of Greek culture and history. Angelopoulos has used cinema to explore the history and individual identities of his culture. With such far-reaching influences as Greek myth, ancient tragedy and epic, Byzantine inconography and ceremony, Greek and Balkan history, modern Greek pop culture (including bouzouki music), shadow puppet theatre and the Greek music hall tradition, Angelopoulos emerges as an original "thinker" with the camera and a distinctive director.
