Medea Louder Than My Thoughts

Body

Medea is maybe the most potent and puzzling heroine of Greek Theatre, occupying the stage so powerfully, we think we know her and can judge her. Many have tried, from Pasolini to Liz Lochead.
Grammatikos’s film gives us strong performances of the essentials of the play and takes us for a walk around it. Everybody has an opinion about Medea. Athenians interrupt their shopping to tell her off, sympathise with her or just wonder about her. Film people try to work her out, the great scholar Nikos Hourmouziadis talks as if he were talking to Euripides himself, a thing he often did on his visits to Edinburgh. Grammatikos himself is still wondering. This is a conversation with Medea in which she – and Euripides - give us things to think about. She is part of us. It’s time we tried to understand her better.

The screening will be followed by a Skype Q&A with director Nikos Grammatikos.
