With director Yorgos Gkikapeppas in person
Presented by the Consulate General of Greece in New York and the Onassis Foundation (USA)
New York premiere. Greece. Dir. Yorgos Gkikapeppas. 2015, 92 mins. In Greek and English with English subtitles. With Kika Georgiou, Aneza Papadopoulou, Electra Nikolouzou. The latest standout in the remarkably rich wave of recent Greek cinema, the sophomore feature from Yorgos Gkikapeppas is a haunting allegory of generational discord. Dido (Kika Georgiou) is an up-and-coming soprano studying opera in Poland who suddenly and mysteriously loses her voice. Plunged into despair, she returns home to Greece, looking for a refuge from the world. Instead, she finds herself at the mercy of a resentful, uncomprehending family, leaving her more vulnerable than ever. Driven by a mesmerizing performance by Georgiou, this spellbinding drama won the film critics Jury Prize at the Thessaloniki International Film Festival.
