Yorgos Panousopoulos, considered one of the most important film directors of the Greek cinema, had already been a pioneering director of photography. Already since the '60s he introduced some significant innovations, like the use of non-illuminated or over-illuminated shots, and above all, the use of handheld camera. Up until the '80s he worked as director of photography in numerous important Greek films.
