Tempelhof in Berlin, Elliniko in Athens, and exNAICM in Texcoco are airports in the process of undoing, abandonment, or recovery–-suspended in time by financial speculation, the relocation of refugees, or the creation of human and environmental “sanctuaries.” Remnants, vestiges, and voices remain in all three of these spaces. h’ ι κ ε T ε i α is a lyric essay on the symbolic and material layers of these three geographies—all with a link to the director’s personal story. The dance of a mythological Ariadne punctuates warped audiovisuals, and the film puts human endeavors and geology in perspective while considering ways of inhabiting contemporary ruins to restore land ties and promote the right to shelter.
