Inspired by Delacroix’s painting Greece on the Ruins of Missolonghi, the filmmaker visits this lagoon-bound town. He records his thoughts, the daily life of the youths, he converses with local artists and poets in search of a connection between the painting and contemporary Missolonghi. Orfeas Peretzis’ new essay-film IODINE: Greece on the Ruins of Missolonghi premiered in March at the 24thThessaloniki Documentary Festival, in the FILM FORWARD International Competition, and won the Fischer Audience Award for Greek films with a duration of up to 50 minutes.

The film was produced by Studio Bauhaus with support from the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation.
