KAPODISTRIAS THE FIRST GOVERNOR
GUEST SPEAKER IN OUR MEETING IS THE RENOWNED DIRECTOR
Sacrifice is the price or the fuel of freedom
This is how Mr. Smaragdis, the creator of a number of great biopics such as Kazantzakis, El Greco, and Ioannis Varvakis summarises his view for his planned production of Kapodistrias. Ioannis Kapodistrias was the Foreign Affairs Minister of Russia after the Napoleonic wars, later on, the founder of Switzerland tasked with the duty of drafting its constitution and appointed by the Provisional Hellenic Revolutionary Constitutional Assembly as the Governer of Greece. He arrives at a devasted, still at war with the Ottomans, country to institute a sovereign state, an immensely difficult task that in the end proved deadly. In this event, we want to present who the real Kapodistrias was and how significant and difficult the task he took upon himself. We also want to unravel the role the British and the French played in his assassination.
We will do this with the help of the director and screenwriter of the "Governer", a film still in the pre-production stage, Mr. Yannis Smaragdis.
The discussion with the director will be in Greek with live English translation.
