The Light Inside (2016), 92 min

The light inside, Stavros Psillakis (GR)

Yiorgis Markakis, an 86 years old ophthalmologist and the founder of the Museum “Lychnostatis” in Hersonissos of Crete, is showing us around his memory ark, to everything that “he harvested with his eyes and has safely kept within him”.
He recalls his grandfather Miliotoyiannis, “the first and perhaps the greatest teacher of his life”, and the yard of his family home in Sitia, where he has discovered “the close relationship between life and death, lamentation and feast”. He speaks about light, the eye, while also referring to the tear, which is “the holy water of the soul” and he tours us around the land of his creativity, the Museum “Lychnostatis”, where folklore “speak to the hearts and the consciousness of people”.
Heartbreaks of experience and memories end up talking about the happiness of the giver, and not that of the taker, since “everything’s value in this world depends on how much you have loved it”
