Trojan Women Re-imagined

The project is an anti-war narrative based on Euripides’ homonym tragedy.

It is a 17’ film on the fallacy of assumptions and their consequences; on the limitations of dominant narratives; the different perceptions of reality; the illusive nature of ‘truth’ and on the futility of conflict.

This ‘script’ emerges from the composition of excerpts from poets, writers, historians, tragedians, sophists, philosophers, rhetoricians, and composers throughout the centuries.

In this project the Trojan War is a symbol of power abuse and Helen a symbol of illusive beliefs.
