In May…

Friday, May 6 — Sunday, May 15, 2022

SUNTAN
Directed by Argyris Papadimitropoulos

2016 / 104 mins
In Greek with English subtitles

Cast: Makis Papadimitriou (Kostis), Elli Tringou (Anna), Dimi Hart (Jason), Hara Kotsali (Alin), Yannis Tsortekis (Takis), Maria Kallimani (Tzina), Syllas Tzoumerkas (Orestis).

This cautionary tale unfolds in the summer, when the quiet island of Antiparos comes to life. A lonely, middle-aged doctor falls in love with a much younger woman and, what begins as one man’s quest to recapture his lost youth, quickly turns into obsession and embarrassment.

This film, which has achieved cult status in Greece, is intended for adult audiences (nude beach scenes).

New York Times Critic’s Pick: “Replete with sometimes startling imagery…, Suntan captures a set of specific feelings: the exhilaration and embarrassment of falling, followed by the desperate denial that one has landed in a very bad place.” – Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

Winner of six Hellenic Film Academy Awards, including Best Film,
Best Director, and Best Actor

XENIA
Directed by Panos Koutras

2014 / 134 mins
In Greek with English subtitles

Cast: Kostas Nikouli (Danny), Nikos Gelia (Odi), Yannis Stankoglou (Vangelis Christopoulos), Marisha Triantafyllidou (Vivi), Aggelos Papadimitriou (Tassos)

After the death of their Albanian mother, two brothers, one gay and one straight, head to Thessaloniki in search of the Greek father who abandoned them many years ago. While the relationship between the brothers is conflicted, the protective fraternal bond they share gives the film an emotional ballast that is both compelling and disarmingly engaging.

Not appropriate for young audiences.

Winner, six Hellenic Film Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director.
Official selection, Un Certain Regard, Cannes 2014

“Both the story and the performances are packed with raw emotion…You come away from Xenia feeling a bit more alive and ready to throw caution to the wind.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times
