Program – Miden screenings at Kinono, August 16, Meeting Point - Chora Tinou, 20:00 In wonderland [61 min] Curated by Nikos Podias

A land of wonders where ingrained rules have ceased to exist. A whole world which can simultaneously be dreamy and real, romantic and tough, beautiful and ugly. This is the land where butterflies have a human face, fear gets confused with charm, time can be stopped, mirrors distort our image, there is always a secret hidden in the woods, the beginning and the end tangle, cats fly high, excess is considered little, myths get involved with fairytales and good fights evil like a sensitive robot fights a giant octopus. 1.

_____________ One of the earliest specialized video-art festivals in Greece, Festival Miden is an independent organization for the exploration and promotion of video art. Founded by an independent group of Greek artists in 2005 in Kalamata, it seeks to stimulate the creation of original video art, to help spread it and develop relevant research. Through collaborations and exhanges with major international festivals and organizations, it has been recognized as one of the most successful and interesting video art platforms internationally and as an important cultural exchange point for Greek and international video art. It also provides an alternative meeting point for emerging and established artists and a communication hub between artists, organizations, festivals and art spaces around the world.
