New York premiere. Winner FIPRESCI Award, 2016 Thessaloniki Film Festival  

Greece/UK/Germany. Dir. Yannis Sakaridis, 2016, 86 mins. With Yannis Stankoglu, Makis Papadimitriou, Vassilis Kukalani. In Greek with English subtitles. 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. 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.
