Adults in the Room (Closing Film)

28/09/19, 19:00, Megaron - The Athens Concert Hall



Fifty years after the Academy Award winning “Z” and having enjoyed an international career, the great Costa-Gavras focuses once more on the political reality of his country of origin, bringing to life the negotiating thriller which took place between the Greek government and the remaining members of the European Union during the first half of 2015. An exceptional cast, a solid plot and high intensity direction in the most highly-anticipated Greek film of the year.


The screening will be preceded by the Closing Ceremony of the Festival. In attendance of the director, cast and crew.  Entry won’t be allowed once the ceremony has commenced. The film will be
screened directly after the conclusion of the ceremony. A reception will follow in the courtyard of the Athens Concert Hall.


FRANCE, GREECE | 2019 | COLOR | DCP | 124' | ENGLISH, GREEK, FRENCH, GERMAN 

Based on Yanis Varoufakis’ book, the new film by Costa-Gavras attempts a fight on many fronts. It tries to map out the contemporary political state of Europe and to reveal how popular will is transferred behind closed doors, where our future is decided. At the same time it acknowledges today’s status quo of the balance of power and, without straying from the spirit of the book, it tries to shed some light to the personal showdown of the Greek former Minister of Finance with what he calls ‘Europe’s Deep Establishment’.

50 years after ‘Z’ won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film, Gavras returns with an ideologically charged film, which praises the importance of debate and political negotiation. I.D.
