Film Summary

Katerina Gοgou lived her life like a flickering candle, wrote her radical poems and shared in other people's pain before she took a rock 'n roll dive into death at the beginning of the 90s. 

Gogou is remembered by people whose paths crossed her own, including actors, poets, political activists, directors, singers and songwriters. Her film portrait in black and white is complemented by previously unreleased audiovisual material and dramatised sequences, featuring actress Loukia Michalopoulou. Katerina Gοgou - Reinstating The Dark Side is the last part of a non-fiction trilogy, which started out in 2002 with a portrait of Fleury Dadonaki and continued in 2008 with the history of Greek rock. A series of marginal personalities who lived and died in the city of Athens provides the connective tissue among these three documentaries, shedding light on an idiosyncratic urban landscape that's forever gone.
