Arkadia, 2011

Panos Kokkinias:"Arkadia juxtaposes the Greece of antiquity with the Greece of today and in this way attempts to reflect on the most recent political developments and to ask questions about the identity of present-day Greeks.”

“In Prespes a mass of people appears to be celebrating a national victory. But the jubilation that leads nowhere is ridiculous and cancels itself out; it is as pointless as human existence as a whole."
