In homage to the most mythical of Mediterranean journeys: Ulysses' Odyssey, this series offers an alternative narrative, focusing on the female figures created by Homer and their influence on artistic creation since Antiquity.

In 4 6-minute videos, you can (re?)discover: the nymphs Circe and Calypso, the goddess Athena, Penelope, as well as the monsters Charybdis, Scylla and the mermaids
