Theo Angelopoulos, "THE DUST OF TIME"

Through references to the Thebaid cycle, the three films that make up Theo Angelopoulos' "Trilogy" follow the destiny of Hellenism as recorded in the relationship of two people, who first meet as children in 1919 during the flight of the Greeks from Odessa, only to lose each other and find each other again in different time periods in different parts of the world, living through the great historic events of the 20th century and the turn of the 21st.

The second film of the trilogy is entitled "THE DUST OF TIME" and takes place in the former Soviet Union, the Austrian-Hungarian borders, Italy and New York between 1953 and 1974, from the eve of Stalin's death to Nixon's resignation in the United States and the fall of the Greek junta.

The shootings of the film took place in Greece, Kazakhstan, Russia, Italy and Germany and finished in February 2008. It is a Greek-German-Italian-Russian co-production. Many international actors participate in the film such as: Willem Dafoe, Irene Jacob, Bruno Ganz and Michel Piccoli.
