Charalampos Kydonakis about "Warn'd in Vain":
'Warn'd in Vain' is an Argonautica inspired story made inside New York City's urbanscape between 2014-2017 that i spent 7 months on the other side of the ocean. It is a twin with a Minotaur parallel tale, titled 'Back to Nowhere' , shot in my homeland Crete between 2009-2017. Both works are subjective interpretations of each surrounding myth and do not intend to document. Each story works as a prelude to the other one and vice versa : "Warn'd in vain" is a stranger's questionmark inside the world's most photographed city, "Back to Nowhere" is a story about my island; the only place i 'll never find out how it looks in the eyes of a stranger.
