Invented Memories: Notes on Filming Industrial Ruins in Eleonas, Athens

Invented Memories: Notes on Filming Industrial Ruins in Eleonas, Athens Filming relies heavily on architecture and other material manifestations, especially when written histories provide little information about a place, as in the case of Eleonas in Athens. Narratives are conjectured in an attempt to deal with disembodiment. But what do built forms, and especially ruins, actually account for when being filmed? This essay uses the area of Eleonas as a case study to contemplate memories - real, collective and invented - through the practical issues involved in the making of a film. It underlines the need for cinematic narratives that lie in the margins of conventional history writing. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis

Filming relies heavily on architecture and other material manifestations, especially when written histories provide little information about a place, as in the case of Eleonas in Athens. Narratives are conjectured in an attempt to deal with disembodiment. But what do built forms, and especially ruins, actually account for when being filmed? This essay uses the area of Eleonas as a case study to contemplate memories - real, collective and invented - through the practical issues involved in the making of a film. It underlines the need for cinematic narratives that lie in the margins of conventional history writing.
