Laurium: a dialogue, 2021
Laurium: a dialogue is a collaborative film by Edward Gwyn Jones and Alkmini Gkousiari, which ruminates on proximity, movement, and language through Alkmini’s visit to an ancient silver mine in Laurium, Greece. The film embraces the inherent loss and labyrinth of miscommunication between Alkmini and Edward in their attempt to translate the entangled sensations, histories, and stories articulated by the mine.
