J.A.C.E. – Just Another Confused Elephant

Fiction, Greece-Portugal-Turkey, the Netherlands, 2013, DCP

Direction: Menelaos Karamaghiolis
With Alban Ukaj, Stefania Goulioti, I. Kaletsanos, Kora Karvouni

A coming of age film about a seven-year-old Albanian (of Greek origin), who becomes an orphan for the second time. The boy is left mute after the traumatic event. He soon finds himself a silent refugee amid Athens’ seedy underbelly, where his upbringing takes the form of a nightmarish odyssey of vice and exploitation. His adventures are a catalyst for an epic, ambitious film which travelled to numerous festivals and received many awards, as well as six awards at the Hellenic Film Academy Awards.

Menelaos Karamaghiolis

He was born in Thebes, Greece. He studied Byzantine and Modern Greek Literature at the University of Athens, and has worked extensively as a writer and director of television documentary series.
