Synopsis: A dramatized historical documentary on the life and revolutionary activity of Philothei, a woman who dared to defy the authority of Suleiman the Magnificent. She freed men and women from the slave markets and provided refuge for women abused and pregnant. She created the first school for women in Europe and founded a hospital. Her revolutionary activity riled the conqueror and the establishment: she was tortured and killed in 1589.
Born in Athens, she works as a film producer and director. She has directed many documentaries and television series which have received awards both in Greece (such as the Academy of Athens Award) and abroad (such as the FIPRESCI Award and the Henry Ford Award). Member of the Hellenic National Commission for UNESCO, she was also the Artistic Director of the International Documentary Film Festival on Disability EMOTION PICTURES (2007-2011).
