CLUB DES FEMMES PRESENTS: PAPA'S CINEMA IS DEAD! Looking Through the Greek Female Lens [+ panel discussion]
20:30 Wed 14 Jan 2015
Greece has exited recession for the first time in six years but are Greeks feeling any improvement? How has the upheaval of Greek society impacted on current Greek cinema? Club des Femmes explores the female gaze and fairytales in the work of two Greek filmmakers: Athina Rachel Tsangari and Konstantina Kotzamani.
THE CAPSULE (Athina Rachel Tsangari, 35 min, Greece 2013) A film for the DesteFashionCollection 2012, commissioned by art collector Dakis Joannou: a Greek Gothic mystery inspired by Polish artist Aleksandra Waliszewska. A series of lessons on discipline, desire, discovery, and disappearance. A melancholy, inescapable cycle on the brink of womanhood.
WASHINGTONIA (Konstantina Kotzamani, 24 min, Greece 2014) Washingtonia is an alternative name for Athens, a place where people, like animals, fall into summertime sadness because of the heat.
We look forward to welcoming director Konstantina Kotzamani and actress Ariane Labed (ATTENBERG, THE CAPSULE) in a post screening discussion.
