Eros in Ancient Greece

Eros in Ancient Greece.

Born out of chaos.

The power that permeated daily Greek life.

A documentary and an inquiry into the deity of sexual love.

Eros, the joyful companion of Aphrodite, a divine figure around which poets, sculptors and philosophers constructed a physiology and a philosophy of desire.

A documentary that build on art, sky, universe, poetry, drama in understanding of ancient Greek homo- and heterosexual customs and practices.

Via visual and textual erotica, philosophical and astronomical approaches to eros, dances and travels to the Greek islands, the documentary present us the most vivid God, the Greek God of Love.

We learn philosophical approaches. We play the flute and we dance. We look at the stars. We remember mythical symbolisms of love.

We hear from archaeologists, poets, actors, scientists not just to remember the past, but also to explore the impact of Eros on our present.
