MIMETOLITHS, a new 60-minute documentary by Montreal Artist Algis Kemezys, is in the official program of the Cyprus International Film Festival, March 24-27, 2006

Mimetoliths, which means “rocks and cliffs that imitate living beings”, is Algis Kemezys’ second feature-documentary. His first, Faces of Myth, was in the official selection of festivals, including Thessaloniki Documentary Festival(2004), and the Maine International Film Festival (2004).

Mimetoliths travels to beautiful/mystical Crete, to closely look at its mythical landscape, to embellish it further with the filmmaker’s own sculpture, and to celebrate its stories. It embraces the Muses that have languished petrified on the sacred stones; the Phaistos Disk; intergalactic travel; Pythagoras’s golden proportion of 1 to 1.618; missing Planets; the Labyrinth; the Minotaur.

The Cyprus International Film Festival is the first of its kind and takes place simultaneously in three cities, Larnaca, Limassol, and Nicosia. The birthplace of Aphrodite/Venus has recently gained membership in the European Union, and this festival is one of the ways they’re announcing the happy event.

Mimetoliths, while still a work-in-progress, was presented at a special screening last Fall. Elie Castiel, writing for Sequences (#240, Nov.-Dec. 2005; page 37) had this to say (translated from the original French):
“... Mimetoliths stands as a unique and extraordinary film, rich and nuanced. It is instructive, even essential, for an acquaintance and a comprehension of the endless mysteries of nature.”

Algis Kemezys plans to accompany his film to Cyprus, but he is in Montreal until March 23, and available for interviews.
