In this television series, Chris Marker decodes 13 words of Greek origin in order to explore the influence of ancient Greece on the modern world. He interviews hellenists, logicians, politicians and artists, intercutting their dialogue with archival footage. A fascinating discussion emerges about everything from mathematics to mythology, and from nostalgia to misogyny. He travels the world, from the united States to Japan, to better understand these words and their usage across history and cultures.
