Evangelia Kranioti has professionally produced both documentary films and photography in the Mediterranean and Greater Europe since 2007, offering a vibrant observation of the transnational and transitory states of various communities. Initially educated in law at the University of Athens in her home country of Greece, Kranioti has also studied at the film and television school La Fémis in Paris, and now again resides in Athens. Producing films and photography that reflect her own restless ideology threaded with classical Greek literary influences, Kranioti’s work is both inward- and outward-looking, concentrating on both migrant groups and agitated identities. With her most recent film, Obscuro Barroco (Obscure Baroque, 2018), for example, Kranioti analyzes the complexities of transgender communities in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, using an interior monologue script compiled from Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector’s 1973 prose collection Água Viva.
