Mr. Dimitris and Mrs.Dimitroula (28’), Tzeli Hadjidimitriou, Greece

A middle-aged man dances in the middle of the street. Greek songs of the 1970s and memories trace a constant smile up on his face. His only company, a cat, Dimitroula. Their lives are entangled in a deep but unconscious way. A camera, as an observer, steals images and his thoughts. Dimitris is different. More human, but also more lonely that the others. His red dress drew the attention of those who went to Mytilene in order to cover the refugees suffering. Many thought that his drama is lighter, more joyful. But Dimitris still lives with his loneliness and now that he is out of the limelight, the night seems darker than ever. We met in 2016. This is his story, as he told it to me.
