Temenos 2012 June 29-July 1, 2012, Lyssaraia, Greece
The premiere of the sixth, seventh, and eighth orders of Gregory J. Markopoulos's final and culminating film, ENIAIOS, will take place at the Temenos site near Lyssaraia in Arcadia from June 29 through July 1, 2012. The first five of the twenty-two film orders of ENIAIOS were presented at the same site in 2004 and 2008 to a group of spectators who had traveled from Europe, North & South America and Australia especially for the event. Screenings of ENIAIOS at the Temenos site will continue at intervals as the restoration and printing of the film moves forward.
Markopoulos wished to create a deeply personal and rewarding cinematic experience for his spectators. He chose the site near Lyssaraia, birthplace of his father, for its natural beauty and conceived the Temenos as a viewing space uniquely in harmony with the film as an instrument of philosophical and psychological revelation.
