Manthoulis, Robert
(Roviros Manthoulis / 1929, Komotini, Greece-)
   He made his secondary studies in Athens. At age fourteen, he joined the Greek Resistance during the occupation of France. After World War II, he studied political science in Athens and stage and film directing in the USA as a grant holder of Syracuse University, New York (1949-1953), and in England as grant holder of the British Council. Having re­turned to Greece, he worked for radio (mostly for the Wednesday Theatre, 1956-1959) and stage (My Heart's in the Highlands, William Saroyan, 1958). In 1958, he organized the documentary department in the Greek Ministry of Information. The same year, he shot his first movie, which also was the first Greek documentary. He taught cinema at the Superior School of Cinema from 1956 to 1966 and collaborated as a film critic on the review Cinema and Theatre. In 1960, he founded a movement",the Group of Five", which helped to release shorts in Greece (1960-1966). He edited I Zoi sti Mytillini (Leon Loisios, Greece). On April 21, 1967, he pre­sented his movie Prosopo me prosopo at the Festival du Jeune Cinéma in Hyères and had to stay in France after having denounced the Greek colonels' coup d'état, which happened the very same day. He worked mostly for French TV and published several books, including a novel, Lilly's Story (1982). Other credit (as actor): 1987 Les Cinq Dernières Minutes (episode "Une Paix royale", Gérard Gozlan).
