Introduction from Mr. Savvas Fragos:

In October 2013, I proposed to my students the cultural program «The Ancient Greek Tragedy in Cinema». The basic question that was going to employ us was simple: could works that have been written 2500 years ago interest the modern man? We have decided to deal with the three Euripides tragedies: Iphigenia in Aulis, The Trojan Women and Electra.

At the beginning we viewed some relevant films directed by Michalis Cacoyannis.

Then, the students formed groups and designed the movie sets, costumes, posters and wrote texts for the scenario.

The last group interpreted the monologues that had been chosen from the three tragedies.

This effort lasted 8 months. During those months, my intervention was the shortest possible, since I wanted to let my students to form their own view concerning the theme we studied.

Today, 8 months later, I would like to thank them from the bottom of my hart, for their enthusiasm and all the things they taught me.
