Director Theo Angelopoulos Plans Movie Regarding Economic Crisis

Theo Angelopoulos, Greece’s best-known director, says his next film will be definitely about the economic crisis rocking the country.
“I am preparing a film themed on the Greek crisis, entitled ‘The Other Sea’,” Angelopoulos told reporters in Italy, according to statements reprinted in the semi-state Athens News Agency on Wednesday.
“The situation is terrible. All that we have fought for did not become reality. The economic crisis of my country leaves me speechless, I see no way out,” said the 76-year-old director, winner of the prestigious Palme D’Or prize at Cannes in 1998.
After years of government deficits, Greece nearly went bankrupt last year and has since subsisted on a 110-billion-euro ($158-billion) loan from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund. It has been forced to make sweeping spending cuts affecting wages, pensions and state services in a recession that has cost hundreds of thousands of jobs.
“Europe was a dream that collapsed very quickly,” Angelopoulos said. “We are not alone. Ireland, Portugal and Spain also face serious economic difficulty. Italy itself is not doing so well either. Perhaps Europe has gone bankrupt,” he said.
