Women and men from other lands with marks on their bodies (Athanasios Karanikolas – tribute to a Berlin-based Greek filmmaker). Medea as myth, Medea as research. (Nikos Grammatikos’s world premiere after five years of immersion in Euripides’ tragedy). Poor shepherds in the mountains of Nafpaktia whose life is going…To the Wolf (Aran Hughes – Christina Koutsospyrou, the directorial debut of these thirty-year-old filmmakers that thrilled Berlin and Toronto, in Athens for the first time). At the edge of a miniscule planet, two dinosaurs patiently await a brief encounter (Athina-Rachel Tsangari – her small masterpiece for the Venice Film Festival’s 70th birthday premieres in Greece).

A young man falls to the ground and the inner force that keeps him upright becomes a scream (Alexandros Tsantilas – his awarding at the Short Festival in Drama constituted a political act). Lust and indolence in a heat wave in the middle of nowhere (Lakis and Aris Ionas – the directorial debut of The Callas has its Greek premiere). John Smith spends an hour learning Greek because someone gave him raki, honey and olive oil (visual artist Maria Theodoraki’s bold video for the first time in Greece, and indeed together with Dad’s Stick, the British filmmaker’s new little gem). A little girl flirts with a crocodile (artist Irini Karayannopoulou’s animation screened at a film theater in Greece for the first time). A young boy becomes a man (in Karamaghiolis’s epic J.A.C.E.) and a young girl learns how to be a Daughter (in Anastopoulos’s political allegory).
