The Iliad & The Odyssey

A 52' documentary directed in 2003 by François Chayé

Has the presumed author of the two first epics of Western literature really existed? Did he really write the two cantos that posterity has attributed to him for the past two thousands years?

We know nothing about Homer, but we know everything about the Iliad and the Odyssey. When we think about it, it is quite strange that after so many centuries, we always come to read these epics. This film wants to explain to those who discover Homer why his work still moves us to this point.

This film is available for all French speaking countries.
