Plot
The film is based on Sophocles' tragedy "Antigone" and remains true to the original myth where the conflict between blind authority and the right to a "different" view prevails. It ίs a subject that one meets even today, in hundreds of variations, in the despotic regimes of Asia, Africa and South America. Antigone and Creon, timeless symbols of this confrontation, are as contemporary as the era that gave birth to the myth. True to the original ancient tragedy the film maintains the morality of catharsis. Creon and Antigone, both symbols and victims of their different beliefs, die and are resurrected and the story recurs in cyclical formatίons, bridging time. The film seeks to serve as a reference to the human conscίence and to the right of free choice, in life as much as in death.
