The Telemachy is a journey of self-discovery inspired by Homer's Odyssey. It follows Telemachus (Patrick Fryer) an Anglo-Greek boy who runs away from home in order to find his true father Ilias (Constantine Markoulakis) on the Greek island of Skiathos. Throughout the film we encounter characters with overlaying themes that remind us that everyone has a story to tell.
Why am I telling this story?
1. I love Greek Mythology, they are some of the most incredible and loved stories known to the world. I would like to pass forward some of the characterizations from within these tails. The Odyssey in particular is often regarded as one of the oldest and best stories in the western world and the focus on Telemachus is often overlooked.
2. Applying modern theories to ancient mythology at university made me realise just how much can still apply to our contemporary society. Creating a relevant character connection with a society more than 3,000 years old not only shows a huge human connection but a rich consistency to our morality and instinct as human beings. Many things have changed but emotions have stayed the same.
3. I love Greece, as a country and a history. It is responsible to everything we love in our modern western-world- Democracy, Art, Theatre, Philosophy etc. I want to pay homage to a country and culture which I so love, that has suffered recent moral decline and I want to promote its beautiful scenery and history throughout the world.
4. I want to pass on the experiences and learning΄s of my own life and the people around me. There are so many aspects to the Telemachy that represent issues and conflicts that have happened to people in my life. I feel these messages are relevant and important to share.
5. I wish to create a sense that every person you pass in the street, no matter who they are, has an incredible life story to tell.
6. On a practical note; I want to make a good film for a small budget, creating something people can enjoy and demonstrate my skills as a director. This film will be a calling card to my future career as a filmmaker.
