Thucydides, The Peloponnesian War and Plato, Alcibiades I
Set against the backdrop of the impending 1991 Persian Gulf War, Thucydides' history of the events leading up to the 27-year Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta is re-enacted. The film demonstrates, by using simple staging and plain costumes, that the politics of men and nations on the verge of war have changed little since ancient times.
