After a four-year absence, the Panorama of Contemporary Greek Cinema returns to Paris at the Balzac Cinema from March 20 to 25, with a selection of the Greek cinema’s best moments during the past two years.
The 7th edition of Panorama is being organized by the Greek Cultural Center with the support of the Greek Film Center. It includes a program of short and large films that stood out from the Greek production either because of their commercial success or because of their distinct festival route.
Among them are the films What If, The Christmas Tango, which broke the Greek box office, Unfair World, and The boy eating the bird’s food, which excelled in major festivals such as the San Sebastian in Toronto, and in Karlovy Vary, as well as two successful documentaries, Raw Material, and Smyrna, the destruction of a cosmopolitan city.
The Panorama will open honorably with the screening of The Representation by Theo Angelopoulos, which will be introduced by the President of the French Film Archive, Costas Gavras.
More movies will be screened in the presence of authors such as Menelaus Karamaghiolis (director of JACE), Philip Tsitos (Unfair World), Christopher Papakaliatis (What If), Petros Sevastikoglou (Attractive Illusion) and George Siougas (Milk) to present their films to the French public. The film which will close the Panorama is the Alps by Yorgos Lanthimos.
