memORIA

Δημιουργός: George Iatrou | Greece

In Italian it means memory. “Oria” was the name of a steamer which sank on the 12th of February 1944 on the island of Patroklus near Sounio, and victims more than 4100 Italian prisoners of the Germans. 70 years later, the documentary captures the history and memory of the biggest shipwreck of the Mediterranean. Elderly residents narrate the horrifying recollection of the shipwreck. Italian descendants of the victims come to pay tribute. The catalyst was a pannikin wich was found by the diver Aristotelis Zervoudis. A monument is erected, reminiscent of history’ s dark points but also fraternization-purification.
