Pure Youth

Ektoras Lygizos

Greece, 2004, 15 min., Greek


Lygizos’ second short film after Interior with woman peeling apples (details) (2002) is his work most explicitly linked to the Greek crisis. We follow a group of teachers who—each one in their classroom and according to the age of the pupils—explains the different intensity rankings of earthquakes, in a situation that looks like a coming drill. The spotlight is focused on the elementary level teacher, a woman we also see presenting and directing a parents-students school meeting in which the ancestors fallen in the war are commemorated. After the simulation, the teacher goes to the staff room and performs a drastic act with an ending witnessed by her own students.
