A documentary made for the centennial of Giorgos Seferis’ birth. The movie was filmed in places where the great poet lived, both in Greece and abroad, with numerous references to his life and work.
A journey into the poetry and thought of George Seferis. The wanderings of a tireless voyager in places, texts, music, films, people, successive layers of experience that accumulate on a rich foundation of significant and insignificant things before they are translated into this other language, Poetry. A wordsmith, a sworn enemy of high-sounding rhetoric forms and emotional exploitation, a lover of work and austerity, an indefatigable literary craftsman. ‘By hacking ourselves, that’s how we write’, words of Seferis that demonstrate vividly the frequently long and extraordinarily painful Odyssey of creation.
