Silent Waters


Directed by Yorgos Karagiannakis, 2009, 37 minutes

Silent Waters is a visual enquiry into the lives and life stories of people living on the Greek side of the Prespa Lakes, a trinational border area located in the northwest of Greek Macedonia. Throughout the audiovisual narrative about this extraordinary place and its various peoples, this film continuously juxtaposes the turbulent history and life stories of the locals with the ‘silent’ waters of the lakes. This film is as much a film about some of the most intriguing Balkan histories as it is about the lives of its protagonists.
