Days and Nights of Demetra K.
Eva Stefani’s documentary tells the story of Demetra, a sex worker who used to own one of the oldest brothels in Athens. Stefani follows Demetra for 12 years to produce a rare meditation on love, agency, and the passage of time. In the discussion, Stefani will present a journal that she kept during the filming, a window into her creative process and a rare commentary on the interplay between sketches and the moving image.
Eva Stefani is a visual artist, a documentary filmmaker, and an Associate Professor of History and Theory of Cinema at the University of Athens. She uses video and super 8 film to make observational documentaries and short visual poems. Currently, she is completing an autobiographical graphic novel. “Days and Nights of Demetra K.” is her first feature-length film.
Eve Stefani’s movie will be screened on SNFPHI’s facebook at 1 p.m. (ET) / 7 p.m. (CET).
This event is organized by The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Public Humanities Initiative (SNFPHI), The Program in Hellenic Studies, and the University Seminar in Modern Greek.
