“These are The Islands in Bygone Seas” with Wiola Ujazdowska. presenting a different perspective on Medea — the main character in a Greek tragedy written by Euripides.
The tragedy tells a story of a passionate, foreign and mysterious woman, that has been betrayed and used by Jason — her lover and father of her children — and put into new social circumstances. Medea kills her own children as an act of revenge on Jason, however driving herself into misfortune and despair.
As a character she has all the attributes that weren’t desirable for a female: wise, aware of her rights and opportunities, responsible for her own fortune, fighting for her independence and needs. She doesn’t fit into the patriarchal society and rules of Corinth so she becomes The Other — a barbarian, a witch. Dangerous, outlaw, adamant and determined.
