Avgerinos & Poulia, a film by Maria Korporal with music by Sofia Koubli, inspired on a Greek fairytale.
According to Greek tradition, the story developes itself from a red string which transforms continuously, appears, disappears and re-appears again, and leads the protagonists along the way of the tale – to grow finally into a constellation tree and give birth to the two luminous stars of brother and sister Avgerinos and Poulia.
The video is part of the project Korporal Zoo, a series of short movies which deal with the relationship between animals and human beings studied from several prospectives: cultural, social, environmental.

Avgerinos & Poulia, un film di Maria Korporal con musica di Sofia Koubli, ispirato a una fiaba greca.
Secondo la tradizione greca, la storia si sviluppa da un filo rosso che si trasforma di continuo, appare, sparisce e ri-appare, e guida i protagonisti lungo il cammino del racconto – per ramificarsi alla fine in un albero-costellazione da cui nascono le due stelle luminose di fratello e sorella Avgerinos e Poulia.
Il video fa parte del ciclo Korporal Zoo: una serie di brevi video che trattano il rapporto tra animali e esseri umani da diversi punti di vista – culturale, sociale, ambientale.
