The National Historical Museum, participating in the celebration of the 25th of March, will screen on Sunday, March 24 at 19.00 in the Hall of Events of the Old Parliament, the documentary by the journalist and lawyer Georgia Bitakos “Manto Mavrogeni: The Freedom Journey of a Tormented Soul”. The documentary was presented in 2021 and received two awards at the International Film Festival of Crete (Best Feature Documentary and Audience Award), while it was also included in the official programme of the Chalkida Documentary Festival.

The documentary, in which Katia Dandoulaki and Tasos Nousias participate, is dedicated to the life and action of Manto Mavrogeni (as she signed). They are joined by descendants of the heroine, writers, researchers and representatives of local authorities and the Church from the places with which she was associated. The music was provided by Stamatis Spanoudakis and the musicians Thanasis Vassilopoulos and Nikos Hatzopoulos.

The filming took place in 16 cities and islands in Greece and Italy, where the heroine lived and worked (Mykonos, Paros, Tinos, Syros, Messolonghi, Nafplion, Chios, Athens, Trieste, etc. ), while the director’s research in the Archives of the Italian State and the study of writings by Greek and foreign historians, travelers, officers and reports made by Manto herself, brought to light for the first time new historical data.
