The unit explores the history of filmic production in Greece, since the beginning of the 20th century but with special emphasis on post-war films, cinematic movement and film-makers. It approaches Greek cinema from the critical point of national, class and gender representations by focusing on specific films and cinematographers from various backgrounds who contributed to the development of Greek cinema. Furthermore, it explores Greek filmic production as a transcultural phenomenon, in the Balkans (vis-a-vis Turkish cinema for example) as well within the context of post-war European cinema in comparison to the cinematic traditions of Italy, Spain among others.
