At the crossroad of the blue

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Evi Charitidou





The road of Tourlida divides the blue of the Lagoon. Full shot.
In the background we see two persons walking. They cross silence. Medium long shot.

Athanasia*

Everything ends here.

Fotis

And everything starts from here… Silence

Athanasia

I come here every night…

Fotis

At the crossroad of the blue… Time. Do you want to see the death of the blue in the black?


Athanasia

I had never thought of this in this way…Time. I come, because it relieves me…

Fotis

The pleasure of the Lagoon. Medium shot.

Athanasia

Frankly, I don’t know… Something drives me here…

Fotis

The beginning or the end?

Athanasia

The borders…

Fotis

The borders of the black horizon? Silence. Sometimes when you distance yourself you feel closer…

Athanasia

Do you believe it? Or you say this for me?

Fotis

I do not believe it; I experience it…

Athanasia

But how?

Fotis

Even before my birth, I mourned already… Silence

Athanasia

I’m sorry, I didn’t understand you…

Fotis

Holy Virgin Finikiotissa can it be seen from here?

Athanasia

Yes, of course… Look there…

Insert: Holy Virgin Finikiotissa. Full shot. Now they reached the edge of the sea and sky… Medium long shot.

Fotis

Is it here?

Athanasia

Almost mute. Yes…

Fotis

This place looks like… Time

Athanasia

Curious. Like what?

Fotis

It looks like a cross…

Athanasia

A cross?

Fotis

Tourlida’s road and Lagoon’s horizon shape a cross…

Athanasia

It’s the first time I hear this… Medium shot.

Fotis

After silence there’s always the first word…

Athanasia

But, you see the world in such a different way…

Fotis

But, it is different! It’s only society that sees it always the same.

Athanasia

I wonder how ugly the world of society seems to you…

Fotis

I don’t live in this world!

Athanasia

But, we all live in this world!

Fotis

We exist in it; we do not live in it. Time. When you come here, you come to live…

Athanasia

Yes, you are right… Each time I come here I live again…

Fotis

But, to live again, you have to die… Silence

Athanasia

You, when did you die for the first time?

Fotis

Before I was born…

Athanasia

When you mourned?

Fotis

When my mother was pregnant, my sister died…

Athanasia

I didn’t know…

Fotis

She was waiting for me and I didn’t catch up with her…

Athanasia

You wanted to help her. But, you were a child!

Fotis

Innocence makes the children. I was convicted… Time. I had to be beside her… She was so little and innocent…

Athansia

It is not your fault... The time…

Fotis

No, time is was with us! Time. I was a captive of life…

Athanasia

But, there was no other way.

Fotis

I had to die to save her.

He is walking towards the sea alone. Silence. Medium shot.

Athanasia

Don’t go that far away…

Fotis

Do you hear this?

Athanasia

What? I hear nothing… Close up.

Fotis

Every night that you come…

Athanasia

Yes…

Fotis

They crucify solitude… Silence. Full shot.
