  • Radio Moscow

    “Surreal allegory, black comedy, film noir in the guise of a kitsch musical, an intellectual version of “Showgirls” or anarchist cinema along the lines of Makavejev?”. These were the thoughts of film critic Babis Achtsoglou upon seeing the first feature-length film by Nikos Triandafyllidis about a cabaret club whose eclectic clientele includes charming scoundrels, alluring dancers and Harry Klynn in a role that runs counter to everything he's done before in his career.

  • The Overcoat

    An elderly storekeeper decides to treat himself to a new overcoat and a tailor goes back to work to make his friend's dream come true. Based on Nikolai Gogol's short story of the same name, this moving film is the rare artistic meeting, as well as the swan song, for two great actors: Dinos Iliopoulos and Vassilis Diamantopoulos. Free entrance

  • Tuxedomoon: No Tears

    Tuxedomoon, the dark offsprings of the San Francisco electronic scene, reunited in 1997 in Greece. Nikos Triandafyllidis managed to capture the band's unworldly melodies and post-punk aesthetic in an invaluable document of their historic concert at the Lycabettus theatre. No tears for the creatures of the night! Free entrance

  • Black Milk

    A screenwriter wasting his talent on soap operas finds himself unwittingly drawn into the underworld. A postmodern exercise on nihilistic humour? A mutated comedy about the end of innocence? Or maybe a film that waited for more than two decades to show how timely it is? Michail Marmarinos, Ieroklis Michailidis, Mirto Alikaki, Renos Haralambidis, Takis Spiridakis, Christos Stergioglou and Kostas Gousgounis round out the proudly all-star cast.

  • Screamin' Jay Hawkins: I Put a Spell on Me

    A blues and rock musician or maybe a voodoo witch? Screamin' Jay Hawkins, pioneer artist of the 20th century, shares on camera his life story and casts his spells, in a documentary which unlocks his most personal moments. Jim Jarmusch, Eric Burdon and Diamanda Galas, among others, unveil the path of an artist operating on a tightrope.

  • The Sentimentalists

    The “Master”. A loan shark illegally trading antiquities in hearses. In charge of his dirty work are two young men, who both make the fatal mistake of falling in love. The “Sentimentalists” will have to be taken care of… Takis Moschos, Haris Fragoulis, Dimitris Lalos and Iliana Mavromati star in the last feature by Nikos Triantafyllidis, an unconventional romantic film dedicated to “creatures of the previous century, who are trying in vain to survive in our times”.
