Antigone is a 1961 Greek film adaptation of the Ancient Greek tragedy Antigone by Sophocles. It stars Irene Papas in the title role and was directed by Yorgos Javellas. The film follows the story of the play closely, but ends differently-instead of Creon retiring back to the palace as in the play, the film ends with Creon retiring his kingship and exiling himself out of Thebes. It was entered into the 11th Berlin International Film Festival.
