Hailed as “one of the best European films to date on the subject of immigration” (The Hollywood Reporter), this riveting Greek drama tackles the hot-button issue with a clear-eyed urgency. The film will screen in New York City at the Museum of Moving Image on May 14th at 6:30pm.
It charts the intersecting fates of three people living in an Athens housing complex: a local, aging hipster bar owner who falls in love with an African singer; a Syrian refugee who turns to a human trafficker in order to emigrate to Germany; and an unstable, xenophobic nationalist who takes matters into his own hands to stop the influx of migrants.
What plays out between them is a bracing, morally complex look at the human side of the immigration debate.
The film, by director Yannis Sakaridis who helmed the critically-acclaimed film Wild Duck, will screen at the Museum of Moving Image in Astoria as part of the Panorama Europe 2017.
