e-21: Virtual Journey to the 1821 Revolution

The Thessaloniki Film Festival created an application for smartphones and iPads, called “e21”, with the help of augmented reality. This app brings to life the paintings created by folk painters Panagiotis and Dimitris Zografos and commissioned by General Makriyannis. Enjoy an unprecedented experience that brings to life the atmosphere of the Greek Revolution.

Download the application for free, and get acquainted with the story of Makriyannis, his Memoirs, their illustration. Through the screen of your iPhone or iPad, with the power of augmented reality, you can view each one of the paintings wherever you are - browse and virtually experience the battles. At the same time, you can listen to background battle sounds and excerpts from the Memoirs of Makriyannis, read by ten up-and-coming Greek actors.

On the active map of the e21 app you can find the true locations of the battles depicted in the works, from the Acropolis in Athens and the Gravia Inn to Missolonghi, Arta, Samos, Crete etc.

The impetus for this initiative was the timeless and inexhaustible power of the Memoirs of Ioannis Makriyannis. Makriyannis himself instructed the popular painters Panagiotis and Dimitris Zografos to depict scenes from the battles and events of the Revolution, as he remembered and recorded them in his Memoirs. The result was 24 paintings crafted by Panagiotis and Dimitris Zografos, which narrate fascinating episodes from the Revolution of 1821. The paintings are accompanied by detailed indexes, through which Makriyannis narrates, comments and highlights unknown aspects and events of the Revolution.

The Festival turned the paintings to 3D, gave them movement and highlighted wonderful details that might not be visible at first sight. These 3D works of art are the basis of the e21 application.
