Constantine Giannaris Τribute

Trojans / Constantine Giannaris

A kaleidoscopic look at the life and work of the poet Constantine Cavafy. A singular documentary, an honest biography and at the same time an exciting “translation” of the world, the obsessions, and the pleasurable sensations of his poetry and his life, in images and sounds.
