TAC International Film and Video Festival  The Amphora of Eleusias


The Amphora 
Close-up of amphora showing Ulysses blinding cyclops 



Homer's Iliad has fascinated humanity for millennia, especially the tales of Odysseus and Cyclops. At Eleusis, west of Athens, a proto-Attic funerary amphora from 650B.C. has been discovered that tells these tales in pictures. This film captures the essence of childhood wonder as the images are shown playfully, combined with a soundtrack of traditional folk music from Crete. What is history and what is myth?
