    • Synopsis
    • "Gateway to Darkness, Chandakas 1647 - 1669", a historical documentary in a script and directed by Manolis Sfakianakis.

      Does this dramatized documentary refer to the city's longest-running siege, through the written testimonies of four people who lived through the events? by Joanne Papadopoulos, Evlia Chelebi, Antonio Barbaro and Marino Jean Bunialis.

      This is a brand new work, produced by the Municipality of Heraklion for the 2019 anniversary (350 years since the handing over of Handakas to the Ottomans), which will be presented to the public for the first time.
