Part of the Edinburgh Greek Film Festival 2017 Season
Nakos is bewildered. Life has not delivered on its imagined promises. He blames Life and - as usual - immigrants and off he goes on a moped and on a mission. His friend Billy has nothing against the unexpected, falls in love with Tereza, a black Greek-speaking migrant and helps Syrian Tarek and his daughter, desperately trying to get to Italy. This crisis – The Crisis – has generated its own instant clichés, behind which are the people to whom Sakaridis here gives human voices, credible lives and dramatic life. If you lived in Athens, these dilemmas could be yours.
Followed by a Skype Q&A with the director, Yannis Sakaridis.
