Within experimental cinema in 1996, Vassilis Mazomenos’ The triumph of Time (O Triamvos tou Hronou) should be mentioned for its ingenious use of computer animation to explore the intellectual trajectory of Don Quixote through the eyes of Charlie Chaplin in what the critic Babis Aktsoglou called “a filmic opera.” Mazomenos (b. 1964) had appeared with his first experimental film in 1995 with Days of Rage—A Requiem for Europe ( MeresOrgis—Ena Rekviem gia tin Evropi), an eschatological visual exploration of the last days of Europe, based on the classical myth of Deadalus and the science-fiction idea of establishing a utopian society through coercion and torture. Vassilis Mazomenos released his mesmerizing and terrifying apocalyptic phantasmagoria Money—A mythology of Darkness (Hrima, mia mythologia tou skotous) in 1998. A visual essay on the impact of money on humanity, it is a film that deserves more attention and which proves the potential of new technologies in the creation of a new kind of cinematic language. With this film, Mazomenos created a trilogy of philosophical essays by means of visual experimentations. His later films Remembrance (2002) and Guilt (2010) received many positive reviews and international recognition; especially the last in which Mazomenos explored narrative cinema through a nightmarish and confronting story.
