Παρουσία των συντελεστών

"Traveller, seek not the myth of carefree life here on the Arcadian mountains. Bare Maenalus resembles an altar of the past. And yet remember. How many times forsaken Nature has disclosed to us That one day through our love Pan will live again." Tegea, Arcadia: A small plain surrounded by mountains on the road to Sparta. Far from the sea, which always lies ahead. This documentary is a mystical journey through Arcadia past and present, a place riddled with myth, existing on a higher plain above and beyond contemporary reality. A landscape with a special place in history and the minds of countless people throughout the centuries that strived for the ideals Arcadia used to stand for. In his second feature, following the phenomenally successful "Mourning Rock", insightful documentary filmmaker Filippos Koutsaftis travels to Arcadia, exploring yet another landscape weighed down by history and emotion.

      The Other Side

      A dive into the abyss of the American Dream. Disarmed veterans, taciturn adolescents, drug addicts, ex-special forces soldiers, floundering young women, future mothers and old people who haven't lost the will to live. Forgotten by God and man, the residents of the Louisiana swamps make for some powerful viewing. Not for the faint-hearted.
