CANTO SI TÚ CANTAS
Giannis and Paris are celebrating Day of the Dead, as well as their anniversary, at the Latin-American themed café-teatral: a crossroads where loved ones meet with solitary souls and strange travellers. All the stories become entangled, the past meets the present, music and dance transform reality and as night falls and the celebration reaches its rapturous peak, the café becomes a small Ark, filled with memories, desires and revelations. With the participation of 50 actors, musicians and dancers, Nikos Kornilios presents this year’s dark horse of Greek cinema: a Dionysian celebration of community and life as a never-ending dance of joy and sorrow.
