Photometria festival is organized for 13th continuous year in Ioannina city, while Greece celebrates 200 years since the Greek revolution.
These two conditions inspired this year’s festival title. On one side, stands the popular expression of “unlucky 13”, on the other, the word revolution, honorary to rebellion’s anniversary.
However, both words also hide “luck” and “evolution”, creating in this way a game among meanings. The prejudice of jinx is revoked by positive, lucky, outcomes, in a frame where we believed that they are not possible.
A revolution, even a suppressed one, will eventually bring evolution. A kind of evolution that does not always mean improvement, a kind of evolution that may affect others than only humans.
Which is our luck as mankind? Which is our evolution? What follows a revolution and for what is worth a person to revolute nowadays? Guided by luck but also by our own decisions, how do we wish to evolve ecumenical as humans, as society? The title wants to bring into the center these and other questionings. We live during a critical era, in which we are responsible for the future.
