Landscape in the Mist (Topio stin omichli) and The Broadcast (I Ekpompi)

Dir. Theo Angelopoulos. 1988, 127 mins. 35mm. With Michalis Zeke, Tania Palaiologou, Stratos Tzortzoglou. In this road movie filled with stunning images, an adolescent girl and her little brother flee their small town in search of their absent father, who they believe has emigrated to Germany. Between hopping trains and hitchhiking, they befriend a young man who helps them on their way. Despite moments of awkward tenderness, this harsh film refuses to sentimentalize the experiences of its characters and the conditions of their lives. Preceded by The Broadcast (1968, 22 mins. 35mm. With Theodoros Katsadramis). Angelopoulos’s first film is a subtly absurdist and deadpan satire about a group of television journalists who attempt to find “the ideal man.”
