Euripides' Movies

UK, 1987 (MIFF 1989, Experimental)

Director: Gad Hollander

Swarthy, fledgling writer Euripides travels to England with the intention of having his screenplay Medea turned into a movie. A great idea, though the film bureaucracy won't accept it. Full of self doubt, he speculates on the film that might have been. Clever satire and sledgehammer irony; a hidden analogy somewhereperhaps? - (SC)
