The documentary "Odessa Classics - Bridge of music from Odessa to Thessaloniki" observes and records the frenetic pace of preparation of the musicians, their thoughts about their own struggle with their Muse as an ally, their joy at the whole-hearted response of the Thessaloniki audience. Stergios Fourkiotis (director) and Mariana Bozapalidou (screenplay) sign an ode to life, to the solidarity of peoples, to the peaceful power of music. A series of musicians of international renown, such as the founder and artistic director of the Odessa Classics festival, leading pianist Alexey Botvinov (who draws his origins from the Greeks of Odessa) as well as the musicians of the State Orchestra of Thessaloniki, are the protagonists.

The Alpine Archeology of Smolika - documentary

Searching for Neanderthals in the mountains of Samarina

The film was made within the framework of the Research Program "The prehistoric research of the AUTH in the NW part of the Prefecture of Grevena - The recording of Paleolithic sites and finds in the area of ​​Samarina".

 Samarina 4 AlpineΑrcheology articon


A few words.....

The prehistoric research of Greek and Italian researchers in the area of ​​N. Grevena, and more specifically in areas of the Smolika massif around the Vlach settlement of Samarina, revealed in recent years the traces of a lively and extremely interesting "mountain archaeology", which for the first time time acquires a special dynamic and content in the Greek area. These are archaeological evidence - mainly stone tools typical of the Middle Paleolithic period - that describe the almost continuous presence of Paleolithic Neanderthal hunting groups that were active in this area of ​​Pindos at least 60,000 years before today. The archaeological research of recent years in open-air sites with altitudes exceeding 2,000 m, near water, small alpine lakes and flint springs describe places where groups of Neanderthal hunters stopped during their continuous movements between the mountain masses of Pindus, essentially recommending the first alpine archaeological sites in Greece. The documentary presents the archaeologists' efforts to trace the daily presence of the Neanderthal groups in the area, but above all to understand the behavior of our close but still little-known relatives, who were found in Greece before the arrival of 'modern humans'.
