Fiction, Greece, 2013, DCP
Direction:Lakis & Aris Ionas (The Callas)
With Aphrodite Psarra, Terpsihori Savvala, Angeliki Chatzi, Annita Polychroni
When lust strikes in a summery, sun-drenched, but somehow darkened Greek countryside farm, a group of four young unemployed women arrive there to kill their time. Love affairs, friendships and passions are subtly stimulated by soil, sun, booze, afternoon raunchiness and a secret from the past. No money, no hope, just excited flesh and the gloom that lies under the sunlight. Their passing of time in the farm will be interrupted by the invasion of two men in their space which will end up in a dinner of incessant shifting of power games.
