Marina Gioti / Live Music Performance by May Roosevelt, Greece, 2021, 18΄
23 July 2021, 21:00
Launching Ceremony is a site-specific audiovisual installation commissioned by SIFF and conceived by filmmaker and visual artist Marina Gioti, realized with the support of NEON Organization for Culture and Development, and in partnership with the Greek Film Archive. Gioti’s new project focuses on the ceremonial launch of a new vessel, compiling a montage of mid-century archival footage from Greek and international newsreels aiming to bring an intentional anachronism face to face with the present moment. Ccomposer and thereminist May Roosevelt composes the film’s score, to be performed live at the opening.
Following this opening performance, the installation will be open to the public from July 24–-26 (visiting hours: 20:00–22:00).
