Manufacturing Mirages

These photographs, taken by Bill Mousoulis, show me oustide 'Hotel La Mirage' on Omonoia Square in Athens. This place gave the title to the six-minute Super-8 film I've just completed. It was shot half in Cork, half in Greece, and entirely hand-processed in Athens at Laba, a wonderful do-it-yourself Super-8 lab set up by Vassily Bourikas and Yannis Yaxas.

A melancholy vision of cinema-as-mirage, Hotel La Mirage again stars Mollie Anna King, with Bill Mousoulis for once in front of my camera in the only supporting role!
