The Real Venice Entry

The media in Stravaraland aren’t altogether with it, either. We have a big song and dance about state censorship in the saga of the film entitled Akamas. Everyone goes on about going to Venice (well, the fringes of the festival, at any rate) while completely ignoring the fact that there is a Cyprus entry actually in competition. It’s in the Corto Cortissimo section and entitled Pharmakon – directed by Ioakim Mylonas. So, give the director of Akamas what he wants (money to make a print of the film), but please be kind enough to mention Mylonas who is actually competing, goddamit.

Not everybody ignores it. I remember very well, that the day that the Akamas scandal was brought to light by the demoniac Makarios (συνονόματος) Droushiotis, Meropi Moyseos made an intensive report on both movies in the cultural section. The problem is that uncivilised Cypriots prefer to read the namesake, rather than somebody called Meropi, and thus Farmakon has been left in obscurity.
