    Second, an exhibition of the photographs of Iani & Milton Manakia — the first cinematographers of the Balkans — will open tomorrow February 15, 2023 in Thessaloniki and continue thru December 31. The announcement by the Vlach Society of Athens includes a link https://www.facebook.com/groups/268915336877997/permalink/1607665806336270/ to a newspaper article that unfortunately continues the nonsensical debate about whether the Manakia brothers were Greek or North Macedonian or Romanian or Vlach or some combination thereof, but at least it has useful information on when and where to see the exhibition. I hope you can get to Greece and see the incredible work of these pioneering brothers!
