presents the documentary production of Yannis Tritsibidas
ARTS AND LETTERS IN PAROS

 

Portraits of 22 artists and men of letters, in 6 episodes of 60 minutes each.

 

This first volume of a series presenting portraits of artists, scholars and also culture institutions, is a partial X-ray image of recent history, arts and letters in Paros including  ideas and life attitudes. It may be of interest or concern to many people, greek and foreign, and will offer Parians themselves the opportunity - and surprise - to discover  the work and ideas of artists and intellectuals they meet in the street. It is an album based on today's appreciations and open to future enrichment. A second volume will appear soon.
The volume  includes portraits of painters MICHAEL BRADY, FREDERIC BOOTZ and YANNIS DENDRINOS, composers  GIORGOS  ZIKAS and  NICOS SARRIS, musician MANOLIS RAGOUSSIS, musician and musicologist MANOLIS CHANIOTIS, poet and writer CHRISTOS GEORGOUSSIS, ceramists STELIOS and MONICA GIKAS, photographers BRIAN QUINN and STAVROS NIFLIS, archaeologist STELLA LUBSEN, researchers OLYMPIOS ALIFIERIS and YANNIS VASSILIOPOULOS, THE AEGEAN CENTRE FOR FINE ARTS (JEFFREY and LIZ CARSON-JOHN and JANE PACK-JOHN ORFEAS MUNSEY), film director YANNIS TRITSIBIDAS, architects PETROS METAXAS and KOSTAS GOUZELIS.

 

The films are directed by Yannis Tritsibidas, Fivos Kontoyannis and Spiros Tritsibidas.

 

 PAROS LIFE, September 2007:
“ARTS & LETTERS IN PAROS”    by Katerina Kantartzis

As an ‘outsider’ to the social circle of the island it was fascinating for me to attend the showing of Yannis Tritsibidas’ documentary “Arts and Letters in Paros” last month. As the lights were lowered and the film began, the room hummed with a whispering familiarity: a familiar face, a shared joke, a friend or neighbour, it was obvious that these documentaries were a true inside view of the artistic and cultural life of the island. It has been most interesting since to recognize some of the people portrayed in the film at different events over the summer and to know something about their work and lives.

In an age when sociologists and anthropologists stress how important it is to document peoples’ memories and impressions, works such as this are invaluable. Although I understand Greek, I wonder if perhaps it would be possible to create a future edition with English subtitles, as I was aware that some of the audience were unable to fully appreciate the documentaries because of language limitations.

Thank you, Yannis Tritsibidas and everyone who participated in this unique project. You have created a vital historical record of the inspirational qualities of Paros and the valuable ideas and memories which flow from them.
