Mikis Theodorakis, Composer is the first film to take the musical oeuvre of the Greek composer as its principal subject. The chronologically structured documentary gives a concentrated overview of Theodorakis’ nigh seven decades of artistic creation, from his ecclesiastic compositions as a young man to the operas of the nineties. The artist’s extremely eventful life is depicted in its symbiotic relationship to his compositions. The film above all lets the composer have his say. Music and image speak for themselves.
