This post is a tribute to the Greek movie director Theodoros Angelopoulos
who died recently when he was hit by a motorcycle while shooting his new movie. Although his slow and dreamlike filming style has caused endless arguments among movie aficionados, he is considered as one of the most important European directors. He has worked with famous actors such as Marcello Mastroianni, Harvey Keitel, Willem Dafoe, Bruno Ganz and Jeanne Moreau. In 1998, he won the Palme d’Or in Cannes, with his film Eternity and a Day.
The offered upload is the soundtrack of his movie "The Beekeeper", one of the many times he collaborated with the composer Eleni Karaindrou
. On the other hand, The Beekeeper is also a very fruitful collaboration between Karaindrou and Jan Garbarek which initiated a mutual respect between the two artists; as a result Karaindrou followed Garbarek and signed in ECM.
