(B&W, sound, 17′)
Director: Marina Gioti
Launching Ceremony is a site-specific audiovisual installation commissioned by Syros International Film Festival and conceived by filmmaker and visual artist Marina Gioti, realized with the support of NEON Organization for Culture and Development, and in partnership with the Greek Film Archive.
The project focuses on the ceremonial launch of a new vessel, compiling a montage of mid-century archival footage from Greek and international newsreels aiming to bring an intentional anachronism face to face with the present moment.
Composer and thereminist May Roosevelt composed the film’s score, that was performed live at the opening.
