The Other Moon

Dimitra Mitsaki
“Ιnspired by Oscar Wilde’s theatre play Salome (1891), the film tells the story of the girl who became the Moon, posing repetitively one single question: What do you see when you look at her? The film was commissioned by SIFF and the audiovisual materials are sourced by personal home movies, the Cimatheque – Alternative Film Centre in Cairo, the Rigopoulos Collection at the Historical Archive of Syros – GAK, Syros Sound Meetings and Nasa’s Video and Image Library.
