The short WHEEL of Theodoros Adamopoulos

It is worth mentioning that the short film is already uploaded (and will be accessible throughout the month) on the Film Archive website. THE WHEEL (1964) by Theodoros Adamopoulos, a movie-walk in Athens that we will especially enjoy today, in these difficult days of confinement. These are the adventures of a car tire in Attica. The wheel was unexpectedly put out of the engine, wandering around the city.

A tour - in a satirical mood - in Athens of yesterday, today and maybe tomorrow. The sight of a small revolution whose final results bring nothing but the renewal of the conditions of the ties. A short getaway. An illusion of freedom. Or is it a daydream?

Actors: Vangelis Kazan, Christos Tsagas, Dimitris Papanikolaou.
