Open air cinema: The Municipal Cinema Garden opens its doors again – Chania 1st June

On 1st June the Municipal Cinema Garden – open air cinema in Chania – opens its gates  for 2020.

Some cinematic highlights:

2nd June: Nikos Kazantzakis an Acrobat above the Chaos,  documentary,  21.00. Free entrance.

This film – a cinematic rarity –  traces the core of Kazantzakis’ powerful thinking, his adventurous life and the depth of his multifaceted personality. Lefteris Haronitis uses historical documents on the one hand, and dramatized scenes on the other hand. He also depicts the unknown sides of Kazantzakis’ multifaceted activities, such as writing screenplays. With thanks to the director, we show this cinematic rarity

3rd June: In the Dark in Crete, a documentary by Viki Arvelaki.  21.00. Running time 26′.
And In the Light, directed by Stavros Psyllakis. Running time 92′.

In May 2015, an action for young and old is organized in Heraklion, which aims to give citizens experience on how people with visual impairments (low vision, blindness) face the challenges of their daily lives. The action took place at the University of Crete and the Pankritio Stadium. There, after the participants were asked to cover their eyes with colorful ribbons, the “dark” experience began. The aim of the documentary is to remind us of the possibilities that our inner eyes have and that the lack of vision is not an obstacle to human progress.

4th June: El Greco – Portraits (2016),  21.00, free entrance.
A documentary directed by Lefteris Haronitis.


Complete program until June 14th:

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.
