Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Yorgos Goussis. 2021, 78 mins. DCP. In Greek with English subtitles. With Elena Topalidou, Antonis Tsiotsiopoulos, Nikos Spanidis. In this love story, two strangers meet by chance on a Greek isle and feel a magnetic attraction. She is a former dancer running away from her life. He is a man on a mission: to bury a metallic box containing the ashes of his aunt. Shot guerrilla-style over nine days with a mostly improvised script and a low budget, this quirky film speaks to the heart in an extraordinary way. Winner of five 2022 Hellenic Film Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best First-time Director (Goussis), and Best Actress (Topalidou). Greece’s official submission for the 95th Academy Awards.
