Sappho (1979) 16mm, color, 44.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: History

[The film] is a simply told biography of Sappho, centered on her poetry but extending beyond her life to the legend which expanded for centuries, making her one of the most remembered names of Western Civilization. For those who are curious about Sappho, I think this will be a revealing film -- also for those who are curious about history and can sense that history is our womb -- certainly the history of the Greeks -- or really the Hellenes -- for their history was not exclusively or even mainly attached to the area we now call Greece -- the film should prove worthwhile.
