A poignant and harrowing account of the rise and fall of Napoleon Lapathiotis (1888- 1944), Greece's most esteemed poet. Acclaimed director Takis Spetsiotis conveys, with sensitive daring and finesse, the poet's life as a romantic charmer, literary genius, communist sympathizer, depraved drug addict and, most importantly, as a national icon whose openly gay lifestyle created a scandal in conservative Athenian society.

Winner of four awards, including Best Actor, at the 1985 Thessaloniki Film Festival (the Greek Oscars), "Meteor and Shadow" is a moving and visually striking decent into the horrors of troubled soul that speaks volumes on the complex and sometimes destructive relationship between and artist's personal life and his public creations.
