ΔΙΑΡΚΕΙΑ / DURATION: 13’ ΣΚΗΝΟΘΕΣΙΑ / DIRECTOR: Dimitris Kotselis


Childhood friends (Nicholas and Stefanos) reunite in a gentrified garage-turned coffee shop where one of them used to work. They discuss the haunting story of the garage's chief mechanic who worked there and mysteriously disappeared, leaving Nicholas as the only witness. The film tells an eerie story where past and present atmospherically coalesce.

ΔΙΑΡΚΕΙΑ / DURATION: 21’ ΣΚΗΝΟΘΕΣΙΑ / DIRECTOR: Michael Demetrius

Paul is a veteran rock musician. His daughter, Anna is secretly a phone-sex worker. Drugs, alcohol, sex, ephemeral relationships, meaningless lives, rock n’ roll: an allegorical reflection of Athens today, and a raw depiction of a family father and daughter drama. Two hopeless people, two common lives, countless clouds.

Ελληνικόν / Ellinikon
ΔΙΑΡΚΕΙΑ / DURATION: 19’ ΣΚΗΝΟΘΕΣΙΑ / DIRECTOR: Konstantinos Prepis

In a modern version of the Sisyphus myth, a homeless middle-aged man finds refuge in the old airport of Ellinikon. The abandoned and deserted landscape dictates his daily routines until everything starts falling apart. One morning the airport is swelling with prospective passengers, disrupting his everyday life and submerging him in absurdity. When he finds a ticket on the floor, he decides to follow its course, only to end up at the beginning of his story.
