"HALCYON DAYS, a documentary film by Giorgos Ch. Zervas
To some inhabitants, the province is suffocating, sometimes even unbearable. The conservative surroundings and the dominant practical side of life diminish their share of happiness and balance. Cultural associations, such as CULTURAL ARGOLIC PROTASIS, are a sheet anchor for these restless amateurs of all ages.
In their pursuit of existential survival, they create an open collectivity, discover new things, read poetry, sing, analyze theatrical plays and work on plays of writers such as DARIO FO, GOGOL, COCTEAU, LOPE DE VEGA, BRECHT, MIKE KENNY, PAPADIAMANTIS, RITSOS... They find redemption in escaping monotony and loneliness of every day life and they participate in a ritual of metamorphosis in search of the humane.
In this journey they are not guided by show off and pathological narcissism but by the euphoria of encounter, the joy of playing, the search for a meaning. They aspire to achieve spirituality, not in order to be witty, but to breathe and to give breath to their fellow humans.
A reflection on the selfless world of amateur creation in Greek province today in a period rife with fragmented social centers and isolation."
