Last week I read about a "premier" of the new film, El Greco, in Iraklion, Crete. Now the Director calls that a "sneak preview".
The official premier is being held in Athens with numerous officials and the visiting Queen of Spain, Sophia.

The painter, formally named Domenicos Theotocopoulos, was from Crete and lived a dramatic life in Spain. Without spoiling the plot it is a story of an artist against the establishment, the latter in the form of the Spanish Inquisition.

Accompanying the Athens premier is a major exhibition of El Greco's works and those of his students at the Museum of Cycladic Art. The paintings come from the Prado and other famous museums.

Read about film making on Paros and about painting on Paros on our full service web site.

Here is a trailer for the film:
