    • Synopsis
    • These are some of the words of Cypriot painter Telemachos Kanthos (the father of painting and engraving in Cyprus in the 20th century). This is his deposition in the documentary with the same title. The rare film clips of the artist, who passed away in 1993, the narration by his family members, his friends and the people who experienced him at different times of his life, the presentation of his best work from the time he was five up to the time of the last unsigned painting before his death, as well as the reconstruction of some scenes by director Pashalis Papapetrou, all beautifully create the portrait of Telemachos Kanthos on the film canvas.
