« POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE CURRENTLY UNKNOWN » SUNRISE IN KIMMERIA
Upcoming Ciné Hellénique : Tuesday 17th March at 19h00 and Wednesday 18th March at 21h00 in Ciné Utopia with the film SUNRISE IN KIMMERIA by Simon FARMAKAS, in original greek version with subtitles in english. The director will be present for the session on Tuesday March 17th, to talk about his film.
An isolated Cypriot village goes into tragicomic overload when a flying object crash-lands in a potato field inside the adjacent UN-controlled buffer zone. A young farmer unwisely digs it out setting off a chain of incredible events.
Narrated with a slight nostalgic note, the film is a hybrid folk tale that blends a tableau of village characters with the portrait of an individual struggling to stand up for himself and make a difference.
Filmed on location in Cyprus, Luxembourg and Germany.
International OCEAN FILM TOUR Vol. 7 - TOUR BEGINS MARCH 2020
Ocean adventure on the big screen: The Int. OCEAN FILM TOUR brings the beauty and fascination of the deep blue seas to a city near you. Be inspired by our program of five to seven short films with a total running time of about two hours. The program sets sail with unstoppable surfer Bethany Hamilton (the face of this year's tour) and a history-making sailing adventure onboard. The focus is on spectacular water sports, fostering community, and as always, the protection of our oceans. The gripping portrait of marine cinematographer Mike deGruy shows a life devoted to nature and the determination to fight tirelessly for its protection.
