Event description

Description

Produced by the Summer School in Homer 2018 and screened for the first time last July at UCL, this film 'All for an Empty Tunic, All for a Helen' will be screened again as part of the UCL It's All Academic Festival.

The film ‘All for an Empty Tunic, All for a Helen’ (Director: Dr. Antony Makrinos, UCL Greek & Latin) explores the values and ideas of Homer’s Helen in the works of various other authors (Euripides, Ovid, WWI poetry and Yiannis Ritsos) but also their significance for the lives of modern women and the challenges they face in the modern world. It also invites the audience to reflect on topics that have been important in the story of Helen but also in the lives of modern women.




Part of the UCL It's All Academic Festival, a free day packed full of talks, panel discussions, screenings, performances, workshops, interactive stands, exhibitions and tours. Join us to discover, discuss and be inspired by the exceptional breadth of research taking place at UCL. In between, relax and refresh with a range of pop-up food and drink stalls. Drop-ins welcome but booking essential for some events.
