Miss Violence
Dir. Alexandros Avranas

Greek director Alexandros Avranas' chilling and incisive drama recounts an 11-year-old girl's inexplicable suicide – and the family secrets that surround the tragedy.


J.A.C.E. - Just Another Confused Elephant
Dir. Menelaos Karamaghiolis

The abduction of an Albanian-Greek orphan is the catalyst for an epic picaresque misadventure through Athens' seedy underbelly in this dazzling sophomore feature from director Menelaos Karamaghiolis.


September
Dir. Penny Panayotopoulou

A poignant study of a solitary woman who develops an increasingly peculiar attachment to a neighbouring family following the death of her dog.


Standing Aside, Watching
Dir. Yorgos Servetas

A boy grapples with his long-suffering mother and violent father in this classic coming-of-age portrait.


To the Wolf
Dir. Aran Hughes, Christina Koutsospyrou

A darkly humorous portrait of a community of beleaguered goatherds, set against the rugged, ravishing beauty of rural Greece.


Unfair World
Dir. Filippos Tsitos

Filippos Tsitos directs this deadpan fable about an Athens police interrogator whose efforts to aid an innocent suspect go fatefully awry.


Wasted Youth
Dir. Argyris Papadimitropoulos, Jan Vogel

Based on a real-life event, this drama about a frustrated policeman and a teenage skateboarder set to cross paths during a scorching summer day goes from a steady boil to a furious finale, simultaneously indicting Greek corruption and serving as an homage to its multifaceted capital.


Wild Duck
Dir. Yannis Sakaridis

Subtly echoing the 2005 episode dubbed "the Greek Watergate," a pair of telecom engineers set out to investigate hacker activity and make a scandalous discovery.


The Daughter
Dir. Thanos Anastopoulos

A taut and timely thriller as well as an artful political allegory, about a teenage girl who abducts the young son of the man she blames for her own father’s bankruptcy.


The Eternal Return of Antonis Paraskevas
Dir. Elina Psykou

A veteran television host whose plummeting ratings and spiraling personal debt prompt him to stage his own kidnapping.
