The Greek National Opera Alternative Stage in collaboration with Thessaloniki International Film Festival and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, present from the Panoramic Steps of SNFCC the installation - feature film, of Christos Passalis and Syllas Tzoumerkas, The city and the city, on the context of a tribute to the 2021 bicentennial of the Greek Revolution.

Six episodes from the life and perils of the Jewish community of Thessaloniki and the image of the city as it is today, create a multi-character narration where two cities co-exist in the same frame: the city of Thessaloniki of the previous century and the city in its present state. An installation co-created by theatre and film directors Christos Passalis and Syllas Tzoumerkas, born both in Thessaloniki in 1978 and returning creatively to their hometown for the first time. A film project that blurs the lines between fiction, documentary and essay film, presented now, for the first time ever, as a visual installation with three screens broadcasting simultaneously.

With the support of MOMus, Claims Conference, EKOME, Deutsch-Griechischer Zukunftsfonds, Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung - Office in Greece, the Region of Central Macedonia and the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki, and the collaboration of the Municipality of Thermaikos and the Athens Film Office.
