Unknown Couple - Can anyone help identify these people?

From the archives of photos belonging to the family of Diamandis H. Chlentzos. It appears to have been sent to Diamandis in San Francisco.


I have a suspicion that it could be Michalis Patrikios and Marigo Combis as they look very similar to the people in another photo I posted here:

Combis Family Members circa 1920

The back row appears to be the Combis Brothers (Grecian Gladiators), Apostolos (1879-1947), Theodoros b.1982, and Athanasios (1885-1971). 

I believe the man seated on the left is Michali Patrikios, husband of Marigo Combis, who is seated in the middle, and on the right I believe is Kyriakos Combis (1876-1920) but I would appreciate if someone could confirm the identities these people.


The photo was a part of the archive of photos of the family of Diamandis Haralambos Chlentzos (1874-1969)

This photo was found in a box in the basement of a house in Potamos.  There are no details except that it was photographed in Esma Studios, Oxford St, Sydney. So it is likely the photo was sent to relatives in Potamos.

Anyone know who this family is?

Australian director George Miller's film Mad Max: Fury Road has won four awards at the Baftas.

Cate Blanchett has missed out on a best actress award at the British Academy Film Awards in London but fellow Australian George Miller's Mad Max film has picked up four.

Blanchett was up for best actress on Sunday night for her role in the lesbian love story Carol but the award went to American Brie Larson for her role in Room as a young mother held hostage with her son.

Leonardo DiCaprio won best actor for his role in The Revenant at the ceremony at the Royal Opera House.

Mad Max: Fury Road picked up Bafta awards for best editing, best costume design, best production design and best make-up and hair.

Mad Max was nominated for seven awards in total but not for best film or best director.

The British Academy Film Awards ceremony was held at the Royal Opera House and was hosted by Stephen Fry, with Blanchett and Australian comedian Rebel Wilson both presenting awards.

Ionian Islands awards in the old Parliament House

12/14/2015 Views

On Sunday afternoon members of the Ionian Union gathered in the centre of Athens to honour Ionians who have made Ionia (the Eptanisian (seven islands)) proud. For the 3rd year, Old Parliament House, hosted in its imposing hall representatives of the the arts, sciences, and entrepreneurship. From Corfu in the north to Kythera, in the south, Paxos, Ithaca, Lefkada, Zakynthos, and Kefalonia.

They brought together all the leading Ionians who in their professional pathways have managed to make the Ionian Islands a proud and innovative place, and put on show the ‘values and greatness of our island’. The evening began with the greeting of the Union of the Ionian Islands president, Helen Konofaou and poetic rendition entitled "flashed light and how the young person came to know himself”. It was directed by Peter Gallia with Giorgos Vlachos, Katerina Georgakis and Petros Gallia.

Vicky Leandros from Corfu was the first to receive her award. Vicky is a grand and consummate artist, but one of great modesty. She worked alongside Hector Botrini. She said, it all started in Corfu when they built their first restaurant – the wonderful Etrusco. The packed room then waited impatiently for the presentation to Paxos. This was because the award to Paxos was to be presented to Christopher Papakaliatis. The premier of his avant-garde second film "Another World” had occurred just a few days before. The audience delighted in Christopher’s success. He talked about returning to Paxos. About his childhood trips to the island, and the nostalgia. What can you say about the other award for Paxos? Spyros Katsimi. The journalist, writer. The words would be few.

Then it was the turn of Lefkada. And the whole room applauded interminably on hearing the name of Elias Logothetis, of Froufalou, in Lefkada. Although the award was for all the Ionian Islands ..., he said, with his unique brand of humour has, his heart was pounding in Lefkada. The award was received by the deputy of the Cultural Centre, Spyros Arvanitis.

The next award from Lefkada was for a man who is deceased, but still helps and supports, always during the difficult times for Lefkada and Greece. One of these was the recent earthquake. And it was none other than the late Spyros Sklavenitis, owner of the super market SKLAVENITIS. Lefkada was always the dearest place in his life. He passed on his love for Lefkada to his children, who today continue his work. His daughter Maria obviously moved, received the award and spoke of the ‘father of Lefkada’, from the heart. "We will always be next to Lefkas, she said, because we learnt our love of Lefkada from our father. “This even though we grew up in Piraeus; we feel that our life begins from Lefkada ". The award was presented to Maria Sklavenitis by MP Thanassis Kavvadas.

This year Kefalonia honoured Akis Tselenti. Akis is a Seismologist. "The earthquakes should be our friend there in the Ionian islands”, he said. “Thanks to earthquakes we have these beautiful beaches” He also spoke about the dignity of the Cephalonian against the devastating passage of Enceladus. Second Cephalonian to be awarded was Thanos Ascetic, a neurologist, and a psychiatrist specializing in sexual health issues.

Ithaca awarded the teacher John Karantzi – and a doctor and healthcare worker who had excelled abroad, Constantine Rosolymo. Zakynthos honoured a woman who was well received. The businesswoman Vagionia Stasinopoulou. The owner of Empnefstria which sells ‘fresh’ cosmetics, through 250 stores around the world. The business was begun utilising simple recipes from her Zakynthian grandmother.

A moving moment for audience occurred when the mother of the second Zakynthian awardee, the internationally famous tenor, Thimou Flemotomou, received the award for her child, thanking the organizers profusely.

Manolis Kalokerinos, for years the President of the Panhellenic Medical Association and director of the First Surgical Clinic of the General State Athens, from Kythera, needs no introduction. "It's our doctor," exclaimed those who came to the old parliament to honour him. And that was enough to distinguish this great personality from ‘Tsirigo’. Kythera also honoured the great scientist in the field of ophthalmology, from Australia, Minas Coroneo, who has performed extraordinary work in the field of the bionic eye.

An award was made also to the benefactor of the classical music festival Paxos - late Englishman, John Gough. Gough possessed the vision to begin this unique festival 26 years ago. The award was presented to the organiser of the festival, Eleftheria Arvanitaki.

The master of ceremonies for the event was journalist Peter Koumplis.

Held the dream for 36 years ... Director George Miller poses with the AACTA Award for Best Film for Mad Max: Fury Road.

George Miller named best director and Max Mad: Fury Road best film at Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards (AACTA Awards)

December 9 2015 9, 2015

George Miller’s epic film Mad Max: Fury Road has been crowned the best film of the Australian industry’s biggest year at the box office since the 1990s.
The action-packed revival of Miller’s 1970s franchise took out the AACTA Award for Best Film at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts’ star-studded ceremony on Wednesday night at The Star Event Centre in Sydney.
Having already scooped awards for Cinematography, Sound, Music Score, Editing, Production Design and Visual Effects at last week’s craft awards, Mad Max: Fury Road, which starred Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, took its total tally to eight AACTAs when Miller was awarded Best Director.
The 70-year-old Miller had fought for years to get another Mad Max movie off the ground — Fury Road eventually had to be shot in Namibia after drought-breaking rains turned Australia’s red desert sands green.
But while the post-apocalyptic blockbuster was largely shot overseas and backed by Hollywood studio Warner Bros, it qualified as an Australian film thanks to its director and funding from local bodies.

Miller was given his best director gong by his original Mad Max, Mel Gibson, who is back in town to make his film Hacksaw Ridge.
He seemed genuinely thrilled to present the award to his old colleague.
“Oh hey, it’s George,” he said as he opened up the envelope. Miller praised his Mad Max: Fury Road crew saying “this wasn’t an easy film to make”.

Smaller films shined in the AACTA Awards’ acting categories, with The Dressmakerstar Kate Winslet named Best Lead Actress and castmates Judy Davis and Hugo Weaving claiming the Supporting Actor gongs.
Englishwoman Winslet winning over Charlize Theron’s Mad Max performance may come as a surprise to some, with the South African-born star currently featuring prominently in Oscars predictions over in the US.
Winslet recorded her very funny thank you speech for Best Lead Actress in a feature film from overseas.
“They said I ought to put something together on the off-chance I might win this award. But I’m sure I haven’t because it should go to a local and I am indeed an outsider.
I did put on lipstick just in case. I loved being a part of The Dressmaker. Thank you.”
Unsurprisingly, The Dressmaker stitched up the People’s Choice Award for Favourite Australian Film — Aussies have delivered the Victorian-shot film over $16 million in ticket sales so far.
Meanwhile, Aussie stalwart Michael Caton was recognised for a performance that spanned comedy and moments of heavy drama, winning Best Actor for his role as a taxi driver diagnosed with only months to live in Last Cab to Darwin. It was his first AACTA award.
Cate Blanchett called for more of the country’s actors on screen as she tearfully accepted one of the highest honours in the Australian film industry.
As had been announced, Blanchett was given the Longford Lyell Award for an outstanding contribution to Australian screen by actors Richard Roxburgh and Hugo Weaving.
“Oh I’ve become one of those ridiculous people who cries it’s just a f!@#ing award,” a teary Blanchett said as she accepted the gong.
A cavalcade of Hollywood directors, including Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard and Robert Redford, delivered video messages congratulating Blanchett.
Blanchett said that more Australian actors should be cast.
“It’s not a quota ... it needs to be fought for,” Blanchett said.
She also acknowledged how happy she was the award she received had had a name change to include Australian 19th century actress and film producer, Lottie Lyell.
“Thank you for recognising Lottie Lyell,” she said.
“I think it’s fantastic AACTAs is coming into the 21st century,” she said in a nod towards gender equality, as the film industry works towards having 50/50 gender equity in upcoming Australian projects.
Backstage, Blanchett said the Australian industry needed to be celebrated for being small and unique, and it should stop trying to emulate other industries around the world.
“I love this industry so deeply and am so very proud to be a part of it that it always pains me so much that we talk ourselves down,” she said.
“We are a small industry and that’s a virtue, I think it makes us unique.”
Directors Ridley Scott and Martin Scorsese both lamented the fact they’d only had the chance to work with Blanchett once and would love to do it again. Robert Redford also paid Blanchett a great tribute.
“You are brilliant and you do honour to your craft,” Ron Howard said.
The director of her upcoming film Carol, Todd Haynes, called the actress “a beacon, a galaxy and a mensch.”
The AACTA Awards’ TV categories were dazzled by Channel 7’s Peter Allen — Not the Boy Next Door, which sang and danced its way to seven statuettes.
That haul included Best Actor awards for the two Peters: Jackson for his Lead role as the grown up Allen and teenager Ky Baldwin for his Supporting work as the young Allen.
Sigrid Thornton’s transformation into the legendary Judy Garland was rewarded with the Best Supporting Actress AACTA.
Not the Boy Next Door was also named Best Telemovie or Miniseries.
Ten’s repackaged MasterChef Australia won in a crowded Best Reality Series category, while the ABC’s new series Glitchwon Best Drama ahead of more experienced and fancied rivals Wentworth, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and Love Child.
Pamela Rabe’s consistently terrifying character The Freak in Foxtel drama Wentworth won her Best Actress.

Mad Max: Fury Road grossed $21.7 million at the Australian box office and $520 million internationally.

Miller reveals the magic and madness behind Fury Road

Sydney Morning Herald

Friday October 9th, 20125, page 2-3

Garry Maddox

Yes, he still wants to shoot the two sequels that were written during the 12 years it took to get that movie to the screen. But it is still too early to say when or even which new instalment – one centring on Tom Hardy's Max, the other on Charlize Theron's Furiosa – he will film next.

"We're certainly talking about them but exactly the timing of that, I don't know," Miller said. "We're still working all that out."

The sequels, which would be shot in Australia after extended rain at Broken Hill forced a shift to the Namibian desert for Fury Road, have been a hot topic since the movie became a rare box office hit, taking $US375 million worldwide, that was almost universally acclaimed by critics.

The fourth Mad Max movie started with an idea that flashed into Miller's head as he crossed a street in Los Angeles in 1998. Then two years later, the former doctor had what he calls a waking dream – with the movie playing out in his head – on a flight from from Los Angeles to Sydney.

Ahead of a talk on creating Fury Road at the Graphic Festival on Sunday, Miller said it grew out of his "strong sense of inquiry".

"One of the things that drew me to this film was the notion of an extended chase and seeing what [viewers] could pick up on the run as it were," he said. "We were trying to put as much iceberg as possible underneath the tip.

"So you read it on the surface as a kind of visual poem but underneath you're trying to pick up as much subtext as possible."
As well as being one of the country's great storytellers – an Oscar winner whose celebrated directing career includes four Mad Max movies, two Happy Feets, Lorenzo's Oil, The Witches of Eastwick and the mini-series The Dismissal – Miller has long been a deep thinker about how stories work and why they matter, drawing on the theories of American mythologist Joseph Campbell.

"One of the major attractions of working in this wasteland world with Mad Max and all his cohorts is that you're going forward to the past," he said. "You're going back to a much more elemental world, which allows you to basically work in allegory.
"So you're drawing on history. You're drawing on present-day events. You're drawing on speculations as to the future we may be heading towards. You're conflating all of those and putting them into the mix and being rigorous about the design criteria that you're working with ... so that even though the movie plays at a helter-skelter pace, [viewers] are picking up enough on the run to make it believable. You hope they're drawn up into the world of the screen without questioning it."

Miller, 70, said "dreaming" a movie was far from rare in his life.
"It probably means I'm crazy but I do it all the time. Ever since I was a little kid, I've been living this imaginative life.
"The more you do something, the more your neurology adjusts to it and I'm pretty well hard-wired for story. Out of habit now, stories are playing in my head all the time."

Every movie Miller has written has come from a similar experience.
"They're not sleeping dreams," he said. "They're what I call hypnagogic dreams or daydreaming – that place between sleep and wakefulness. That unguarded moment when you're in a kind of dissociated state ... It's always in those sort of moments: on a long flight or in the shower.
"I remember having a conversation with George Lucas once and he said just about every great idea he's ever had has come in the shower because you can't be on the internet, you can't be on the phone, you're not watching TV.
"You're just there in that kind of state and the ideas come to your mind."
Miller said it necessarily changed the storytelling in Fury Road when Hardy took over from Mel Gibson as Max in the action series.
"The essential architecture of the story is always going to be there. But the actual tones and colour are going to vary depending on what the actor brings.
"You have something in your mind as you've written or devised it but when it's captured in the camera, that becomes the new reality. That's what you've got to work with.
"It's impossible to know exactly how different it would be but it must be different and pretty soon you've forgotten what you had in your imagination."

After that waking dream one night over the Pacific, Miller and co-writers Brendan McCarthy and Nico Lathouris developed Fury Road in an inventive way. Instead of a script, they created 3500 storyboard panels – effectively comic book scenes – that outlined what happened in the movie shot by shot.

"The task was to see how much story or experience or felt life you could create for an audience during a very fast action piece," he said. "I'm always interested as to how film language is evolving.
"It's an acquired language. It basically laid down its syntax in the silent era. In many ways Mad Max is a silent movie with sound."

ΕΘΝΟΣ «E» 17/5/2015


Μιλάει Ελληνικά και στηρίζει τις δράσεις της ομογένειας
Ο Τζορτζ Μίλερ γεννήθηκε στην πόλη Τσιντσίλα του Κουίνσλαντ, 3 Μαρτίου του 1945 με τον δίδυμο αδελφό του Γιάννη, ενώ η οικογένεια απέκτησε και άλλα δύο αγόρια, τον Χρήστο και τον Βασίλη.

Σε εκείνη την άκρη της Γης έπαιζε ινδιάνους και καουμπόηδες με τους φίλους του και παρακολουθούσε μερικά φιλμ της εποχής που εξάπτουν τη φαντασία των παιδιών. Αργότερα η οικογένεια έφτασε στο Σίδνεϊ, ενώ ο Τζορτζ μεταξύ άλλων υπήρξε και παπαδοπαίδι στον ναό του Αγίου Γεωργίου.
Ο σκηνοθέτης του «Mad Max» σπούδασε Ιατρική μαζί με τον δίδυμο αδελφό του, εργάστηκε σε νοσοκομείο και κέρδισε βραβείο σε διαγωνισμό μονόλεπτου φιλμ. Για χρόνια υπηρέτησε την Ιατρική πριν τον κερδίσει ο κινηματογράφος και σταδιακά γύρισε επαγγελματική σελίδα. Τα επείγοντα περιστατικά του δημόσιου νοσοκομείου όπου βίωσε δύσκολες καταστάσεις, τραυματισμούς και θανάτους, και η εξάσκηση του ιατρικού επαγγέλματος για χρόνια ήταν η αναγκαία προϋπόθεση για να υποστηρίξει την καριέρα του σκηνοθέτη.
Η πρώτη ταινία του είχε τίτλο «Βία στο σινεμά μέρος πρώτον», αν και δεν υπήρξε ποτέ η συνέχεια. Σημείο-σταθμό βεβαίως αποτέλεσε ο «Mad Max». Ηταν το 1979 όταν ο Μίλερ παρουσίασε τον ήρωά του, έναν αστυνομικό που μεταμορφώνεται σε εκδικητή για τον χαμό της οικογένειάς του. Πρωταγωνιστής ο άσημος τότε Μελ Γκίμπσον, ο οποίος τότε έγινε γνωστός στο ευρύ κοινό.

Με τη σύζυγο και τον πρώτο τους γιο στα Κύθηρα.
Την ταινία, η οποία έγινε παγκόσμια επιτυχία, απέφερε τεράστια κέρδη και απέσπασε βραβεία δημιούργησε ο Τ. Μίλερ σε συνεργασία με τον Β. Κένεντι. Ακολούθησε το δεύτερο μέρος το 1981 με πεδίο πάλι την Αυστραλία, ενώ το 1989 η τρίτη πράξη βρίσκει τον ήρωα Μαξ στη μέση της ερήμου σε ένα δυστοπικό μέλλον. Εκτός από τον «Mad Max» ο Τζορτζ Μίλερ έχει υπογράψει σημαντικά έργα και έχει διακριθεί πολλές φορές. Κέρδισε το Οσκαρ κινουμένων σχεδίων με την ταινία «Happy Feet», ενώ είχε και τρεις υποψηφιότητες για Οσκαρ για το σενάριο της ταινίας «Lorenzo's Oil» και την ταινία «Babe» στις κατηγορίες Καλύτερης Ταινίας και Σεναρίου. Μάλιστα έχει συνεργαστεί με πολλούς πρωταγωνιστές του Χόλιγουντ, όπως οι Τζακ Νίκολσον, Μισέλ Φάιφερ, Σερ, Νικόλ Κίντμαν κ.ά.

Οι γονείς Μίλερ (κέντρο) και ο αδελφός του Γιάννης (αριστερά).
Δεν ξεχνά τις ελληνικές ρίζες του
Παράλληλα με την καλλιτεχνική καταξίωση όμως δεν ξεχνά ποτέ τις ελληνικές ρίζες. Στην Αυστραλία η πολυπληθής παροικία των Κυθηρίων με 50-60.000 μέλη αναπτύσσει έντονη κοινωνική δράση και ο Τζορτζ Μίλερ δίνει συχνά το «παρών» λέει ο Γιώργος Πούλος γραμματέας στον Σύνδεσμο Κυθηρίων και εκπρόσωπος του Kythira family net όπου υπάρχει εκτενής αναφορά και φωτογραφίες απο την πορεία της οικογένειας.

Κοντά στην Ομογένεια της Αυστραλίας. Με τον πρόεδρο του Συνδέσμου Κυθηρίων Βίκτωρα Κυπριώτη και την αντιπρόεδρο Κατερίνα Σαμίου.

Steve & George Malos - Australia 1939

Steve Malos arrived in Australia with father Paul Malos in 1934. His brother George arrived in 1939. George went to Mackay to stay with relatives, but sadly drowned one year later in Monto Qld. George was also suffering from Osteomyelitis.
