EN - In her first cinematographic film, artist Eleni Kamma revisits the tradition of the Karagoz Theatre and its role in the creation of a political voice. Although Karagoz is a local character symbolising the little man within the limits of the Ottoman Empire, he belongs to a larger puppet theatre family. He speaks what the people want to hear and what the people want to say.
