The NEON con­tem­po­rary art foun­da­tion is show­ing a tril­ogy of films by Adrian Vil­lar Ro­jas at the Na­tional Ob­ser­va­tory on the Hill of the Nymphs in cen­tral Athens. With “Un­known Sol­dier” hav­ing al­ready been screened last month, the fi­nal two are “A War on Earth” and “The Most Beau­ti­ful Mo­ment of War,” which will be shown on July 7 and 13 re­spec­tively. The crit­i­cally ac­claimed Ar­gen­tinean artist made the films over the course of his trav­els around the world, cap­tur­ing the day-to-life of dif­fer­ent peo­ple, nat­u­ral land­scapes and the work­ings of na­ture down to the small­est de­tail in a bid to un­der­score the per­pet­ual evo­lu­tion of man, na­ture and our planet. The screen­ings are part of a large-scale site-spe­cific pro­ject by Ro­jas at the ob­ser­va­tory (run­ning through Septem­ber 24, Thurs­days-Sun­days 11 a.m. - 9 p.m., free ad­mis­sion), ti­tled “The The­ater of Dis­ap­pear­ance.” Na­tional Ob­ser­va­tory of Athens, Hill of the Nymphs, Thi­seio, www.neon.org.gr
