Ismyrna (Ismyrne), 2016, Lebanon/France/United Arab Emirates, 50 min.
Directors: Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige

When Lebanese artist Joana Hadjithomas met the painter and poet Etel Adnan, they bonded over their family links to a city they had never visited: Smyrna, now Izmir. In this film, the two women’s personal stories offer a way to understand the changes that took place in the Middle East after the fall of the Ottoman Empire.


Keimena, a documenta 14 Film Program on ERT2, airs Mondays at midnight from December 19, 2016 to September 18, 2017. Each film can be viewed during the broadcast and streamed on demand for seven days thereafter. Please note that the films are presented in their original language with Greek subtitles, and can be streamed from within Greece only.
