Ulysses' Gaze

Recounts the odyssey of an American filmmaker (Harvey Keitel) who returns to his Greek hometown after 35 years to pursue a dream of finding three reels of undeveloped film by the Manakis Brothers, pioneers of Balkan cinema. The quest leads him from Greece to Albania, Bulgaria, Romania and finally to the ruin of the under-siege Sarajevo. This visually exceptional film just missed out to 'Underground' at the '95 Cannes Film Festival.
