Opening film with Live Greek Music performance by Pascal & the Shades before, Hall 1

Eftychia (Opening Film) by Angelos Frantzis – German premiere Before: Live Greek Music with Pascal & the Shades (including music cover of the soundtrack of the film)


Inspired by the life of the most prolific Greek female poet and lyricist; an extraordinary woman and artist who has created a massive volume of timeless and popular songs.
As a refugee she travelled from Smyrna to Greece, with only one little pillow clutched between her arms and her two children. She lived every day of her life as if it were her last: She wrote incessantly on any surface she could find, she chain smoked, fell helplessly in love and gambled fearlessly in posh clubs and dirty dumps alike.
Her name means Happiness but destiny made sure she knew very little of it.

Repetition: Saturday, 23.01.2021, 17:30 Hall 1
