Abstract

Travel narratives in Greek cinema of the 1990s chronicled the shifting perceptions of Greece’s role in Europe and the Balkans. Their figuration of internal exile expressed the disenfranchisements wrought by European convergence, while their depiction of travel to other Balkan countries signaled a renewed engagement with Greece’s regional responsibilities and multicultural heritage. Viewing these films through the lens of Greek cultural theory, this essay addresses how their representation of cinematic space negotiates competing European and Balkan paradigms of Greek national identity.
