  synopsis

The film traces the journey of Greek avant guard theater group ATTIS in Georgia The first Greek group ever to tour this area which has been inhabited for many years by Greeks who have formed their own villages and communities

A rare and emotionally moving blend of images which portray the life in the far away countries of one of the most importatnt group of Greek migrants.

While the group performs Heiner Muller’s Medea Material in areas following the traces of the Argonauts,around the town which is recogned to be Medea’s own birthpalce,actors meet and mix with local Greeks,”Pontioi” that have lived in the area for many years and keep their traditions in order to keep a bridge with their home country.

In the film they narrate in their own particular language the story of their ancestors that occupied this and in Soviet Georgia and they also perform in an extremely moving manner, local songs and theater.
