When and how was our umbilical cord to the East cut? The new history documentary of the Hellenic History Foundation (IDISME) based on the correspondences of the journalist Kostas Missaelidis on the Asia Minor Campaign (1919-1922). The tragedy unfolds through the writings of Missaelidis, Asia Minor war correspondent, journalist and poet. From within the harsh battlefields and the ruins, the human drama emerges.
The film took part in the Official Programme of the 21st Thessaloniki Documentary Festival.
The premiere of the film will take place on May 2, 2019, at the War Museum of Athens (Ioannis Kapodistrias Amphitheatre).
During the event, the Hellenic History Foundation will present its newest publication, sponsored by the Cultural Foundation of J.U.A.D.N.
