THE TRIBUTE TO GREEK REBETIKO SONG
Directed by Costas Ferris
Writing credits Costas Ferris Sotiria Leonardou
Based on a true story, this uneven but engaging musical drama sweeps through a turbulent 40 years in popular singer Marika Ninou's (Sotiria Leonardou) life -- and in the history of Greece -- starting with the singer's birth in Smyrna, Turkey in 1917. Ninou was deported to Greece along with all the other Greeks in Smyrna when she was only seven years old, and a few years later, her parents started a career as a musician and a singer in a nightclub/bar. In the short space of one decade, Ninou witnesses her father murder her mother, runs away from home, has a baby, and comes back to the nightclub to sing in an act with a childhood friend and a bouzouki player, Babis. Success finally comes big-time, but then Ninou's childhood friend is exiled for political reasons, and she and Babis leave for other venues. Although Ninou carries a torch for Babis, their relationship never seems to work out, and after many years and World War II go by, she sends her daughter away to a convent school and goes on a tour in America. At last, her fame may spread beyond the boundaries of Greece -- or so it seems. Sotiria Leonardou won the prize for "Best Actress" at the 1983 Thessaloniki Film Festival, for her portrayal of Ninou, and the film itself tied for "Best Picture," and won three other awards as well (two "Best Supporting Actor" prizes, and one for music). ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide

D irector, Author, Impresario, Entrepreneur etc, Costas Ferris was the primary creative force behind the production of the 1983 film "Rebetiko" as well as the 1991 Television special series for NGTV, which was essentially a Guided tour of Rebetiko music, titled " Stou Thoma - O Kosmos Tou Rebetikou" (At Thomas's - The World of Rebetiko) . While his film " Rebetiko " is now well known and has reached near legendary status among avid Rebetiko Aficionados on both sides of the Atlantic, those fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to witness the " Stou Thoma " production are equally unanimous, that it too is destined to become a special event and as satisfying and illuminating a video experience as was the 1983 movie. Ferris has been one of the seminal forces behind the movement to bring the Rebetic Ethos, along with it's marginal Sociological connotations in from out of the cold to shine a more realistic light on this seldom whispered about past. By doing so he has cast new insights on this most absorbing Hellenic musical treasure from the first part of the 20th century. His film "Rembetiko", focused on a good deal more then just the musical content of the genre. The film's primary significance stems from the fact, that it gave a tangible and realistic human context to people, places and events from a period in time, that for many has always been something of a Sphinx Enigma. This is particularly true for individuals who are now second or third generation English speaking descendents of the late 19th century Greek Diaspora, that left the Greek mainland a long time ago. It is this Demographic in particular which often has a difficult time relating to various elements from their own Ethnic history, that the labors of individuals such as Ferris have been most instructive and something of a revelation. One that serves to remind a few of us who we really are and from where we actually came. For a more detailed account of Mr. Ferris credits, click on the photo above.
