WHEN: 1st December  20.oo – 22.00 and 22.00 – 24.00

WHERE: Cultural Centre Chania, Andrea Papandreou 70
Free entrance.

Organisation: Cultural Association “THE FRIENDS OF LETTERS AND ART” in co-operation with the Spanish and Argentina Embassies in Greece.

About the film:
In the 60s, a young soldier  returns to the humble rural croft of his youth to visit his ageing parents, and recalls, in a series of flashbacks, the lives of his family.
In Franco’s Spain for the poorest workers on the estates, life is feudal and brutal.

If Camus places his sympathy firmly with these innocent victims rather than their morally impoverished employers, his mood is nevertheless one of restraint, shot through with moments of symbolism and dark spirituality.  A moving and mournful valediction to an unforgotten past.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
