Art + Docs: In the mind of the artist
September 10th to 16th, 2020
Lais open-air cinema, Greek Film Archive

The Greek Film Archive and Exile Room present a week of documentary dedicated to the obsessive universe of artistic creation. Recent productions, as well as vintage gems that deign a second coming, will stimulate both the eyes and the minds of art-loving movie buffs.

Renowned documentary filmmakers, like Peter Watkins, Agnès Varda and Nathaniel Kahn, meet notable newcomers in a kaleidoscope of films on the eternal hunt for inspiration, the elusive nature of talent and the limits of artistic expression.

An extraordinary look into the urban street art scene, unconventional portraits of ingenious artists, like Edvard Munch and David Hockney, unknown trailblazers demanding the retelling of Art History, titillating imagery and shameless press manipulations courtesy of Robert Mapplethorpe and Maurizio Cattelan, are just a few of the things you can expect to see in this showcase, that can only be described as a roller-coaster ride through the impenetrable world of art!

All screenings will take place at Lais, the Greek Film Archive’s open-air cinema, with Greek subtitles.

This is the second collaborative foray into Art & Docs, organized by the Greek Film Archive and Exile Room, following a successful showcase in 2015.
