Reduced to ashes




Documentary Short Film, 2020



An entrancing look at “Anastenaria”, an age-old ritual still performed in a small number of villages in Northern Greece, following a journey of transcendence and purification – from lighting the fire to dancing over the hot coals, until there are only ashes left.
