Abstract:

Warriors and Maidens' is part of a series of films from Barrie Machin. Warriors and Maidens examines the way history economics and religion combine to produce enduring gender codes governing the social relationships between men and women. This playlist features an introduction to the documentary, a discussion of the video with Mragaret Papndreou and friends as well as Inheritance in Western Crete and Curse Love, excerpts from the film. "In 1967-1968, I went to the village of Pallikari in Western Crete with my family to carry out a social anthropological study of child rearing. Over the years I returned there many times. The film is a record of the village before globalization and the explosion of mass tourism. It celebrates a unique way of life. I was fortunate enough to gain an audience with the then first lady of Greece Margaret Papandreou, who with leading Greek feminists discuss the film. Accompanying me is the famous Greek anthropologist Vassiliki Chrisanthopoulou. The views expressed are not necessarily the views of the anthropologists. I returned to my village in western Crete in 1979 for six weeks after completing the first draft of my book and filmed freely around the subjects of the chapters. By then I was very familiar with the social patterns of the village. I entered Heraklion airport with eleven hours of three-minute super 8 cassettes filling a suitcase. The airport at Heraklion was deserted and in true British style I waited for about ten minutes at a bare wooden table, which I took to be customs but in the end I gave up and left. As Natalie Portman has said it is sometimes best to be ignorant when you take on a task. This was a mammoth task but somehow I carried it off. During the process I also recorded extra sound on an audio-recorder. This proved to be very useful." - Barrie Machin.
