Presented by The Archives of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Fairfield University, and AGON
Based on an idea by Katherine Schwab, professor of Visual and Performing Arts at Fairfield University and director of The Caryatid Hairstyling Project, the Archives of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, in collaboration with Fairfield University and the Archaeological Fim Festival AGON, are hosting an evening of archaeological films, recently shown at the 9th International Meeting of Archaeological Film of the Mediterranean (7th-13th May 2012).
The International Meeting of Archaeological Film of the Mediterranean (AGON), established in 1996, and a founding member of the European Federation of Film Festivals on Archaeology and Cultural Heritage (www.fedarcine.com), organizes every two years in Athens a film festival with international representation. The American School of American Studies and Fairfield University are grateful to the Organizing Committee of AGON for sponsoring this event with a selection of films from their 9th Meeting. The event is open to the public.
James Wright, Director of the ASCSA, Katherine Schwab, Professor of Visual and Performing Arts at Fairfield University, Memi Spyratou, President of AGON Festival, and Natalia Vogeikoff-Brogan, Archivist of the ASCSA, will be introducing the films.
