One Step Ahead (Ena Vima Brosta)
Dir. Dimitris Athiridis. 2012, 126 mins. DCP. With the country sinking into economic chaos and the city of Thessaloniki mired in political corruption and dysfunction, successful wine producer Yiannis Boutaris decides to run for mayor. Provocative and unconventional, he proves himself to be a determined candidate as he challenges the establishment, outraging the power elite as well as conservative voters. Director Dimitris Athiridis creates an engaging documentary as he records Boutaris in private moments and on the campaign trail, right up to election day when he finds himself in a neck-to-neck race to City Hall.
