24th Athens International Film Festival

Blind Crossing

25/9/2015, 19:00, Odeon Όπερα 2

Two people with diametrically different personalities have one thing in common: they both have visual impairments. Initially a fiction film about two blind mobsters, "Blind Crossing" eventually evolved into an affectionate documentary.

Free screening

Kostas and Stratis are two people with diametrically different person- alities. Kostas likes Greek pop music, while Stratis prefers the artsier stuff. Kostas is afraid of cats, while Stratis has dozens of them. Kostas is a tease where Statis always means well. But they do have one thing in common: they both have visual impairments. We watch them explore a lake, disagree on their canes and exchange opinions. When Startis leaves for Mytilini in a rush, Kostas continues his nature expedition ac- companied by his friend Lefteris, meeting local folk, petting animals and telling stories. Initially a fiction film about two blind mobsters, "Blind Crossing" eventually evolved into an affectionate documentary.
