Synopsis
"The Broadcast: An experimental homage to the “free cinema” of the period, Angelopoulos’ debut short film begins like a cinema vérité, and is also a subtly absurdist and subversive satire that slyly past the censors during the beginning of military dictatorship. The story follows a group of television journalists wandering around Athens, asking passersby for their definition of the “ideal man”. An ordinary man is randomly picked as the winner, whose ultimate award is no more than becoming a puppet in a media show. Reconstruction: Hailed as one of the most remarkable debuts ever, Angelopoulos’ modernist reconstruction of the Agamemnon tragedy heralded the New Greek Cinema Movement. A real-life crime committed in a forsaken village is reconstrued as a complex interplay: of a case re-enactment conducted by the police, of a tabloid news reported by the journalists, and of the dying of the Greek traditional values under the military regime. Juxtaposing noir-inflected passion with incisive
