Spotlight Vangelis Mourikis: Isovites – by Thodoros Maragos

International premiere, cult film, protagonist Vangelis Mourikis present, Q & A after the screening 

Two lifers meet in a prison cell. The one is Panos, a former truck driver. The other is Captain, an outraged protesting citizen that turns the prison cell into a battlefield. The latter has entered the prison “voluntarily”, because he believes that the life of a prisoner is better than the one in the outside world! This is their hilarious story; a crazy and unorthodox film, with the most “politically incorrect” humour – so be prepared! This film was personally chosen by the festival’s honoured actor Vangelis Mourikis.
