The city of Thebes forms the background to many a Greek tragedy. In Sprouts of a dragon’s teeth, Greek filmmaker Danae Io shows us the reality of modern-day Thebes. The poet Stathis Gourgouris provides us with the words that describe the human element, while the images reflect on the land, the surroundings and on decay.
