‘11 MM’ Is Athens at Night by Diamantis Karanastasis with Music by MOBY

ATHENS – The film 11 μ.μ. by Diamantis Karanastasis showcases the streets of Athens by night and refers to the empty cities all over the world during the pandemic lockdowns, with impressive background music by MOBY.

Karanastasis uses the classic 1962 film Athens at Night, directed by Klearhos Konitsiotis, to contrast with Athens at Night 2021 and creates a poetic 15-minute film, starring the city, its hangouts and our absence. The resulting film highlights the endless silence of the cultural spaces at a time when the city was usually buzzing with life.

The visual and audio material from Konitsiotis’ Athens at Night (1962) is used with the permission from Papandreou SA.

Filmed on Friday, March 19 and Sunday, March 21, 2021, shortly after the curfew on the city streets, 11 MM is a record of what we experienced during the pandemic.

The film is available on Vimeo:
