DANCE FIGHT LOVE DIE – WITH MIKIS THEODORAKIS ON THE ROAD

A clip-style journal. 60 bits of music. 60 stories. 1 anti-romance. The most extraordinary film about musical anarchist Mikis Theodorakis.

DANCE FIGHT LOVE DIE is an exuberant visual epic: a poetic road movie from the cosmos of composer Mikis Theodorakis (Z, CANTO GENERAL, SERPICO, ZORBA THE GREEK). He is the ingenious enfant terrible of our recent European musical history, who inspired millions around the world, a standout artist shaped by his dramatic century, a man who made history.

From 1987 to 2017 director Asteris Kutulas was a constant at Theodorakis’ side. He captured countless moments of the composer’s life over 3 decades, 4 continents, 100 locations, and 600 hours of footage. For this exceptional film, Kutulas spliced extremely personal moments with treasures from the archives, documentary recordings with fictions, even the humorously grotesque, adding Theodorakis’ own music as reinterpreted by many, mostly young, artists who add to the master’s compositions their own personal inflections, be it from rock, jazz, classical, electro or rap.

An 87-minute music extravaganza… Very few words.

DANCE FIGHT LOVE DIE a film about Inspiration, Eros and Thanatos.
