Grandmother’s footsteps

by Lola Peploe, France, 2023, 64' Greek Premiere

Expecting her first child and wondering how to reconcile motherhood with being an artist, Lola Peploe begins a dialogue with her grandmother Cloclo, a landscape painter, aesthetic nomad and free spirit.

Lola decides to follow in her footsteps and return to Greece, to the Cycladic islands, where Cloclo spent the last twenty years of her life painting.

She begins to talk to Cloclo in her mind, reconstructing Cloclo’s life as she wanders the streets of Amorgos in search of her old painting studio.

A navigation between past and present, alternating between unexpected encounters, Super 8 video footage filmed by her father and voice recordings of Cloclo telling her own life story.

The film features the voice of Charlotte Rampling and the last screen appearance of Bernardo Bertolucci.
