This retrospective of shorts by Greek filmmaker Konstantina Kotzamani includes the award-winning Limbo (2016), Washingtonia (2014), and Morning Prayers (2013) which was co-directed by Katarina Stanković. From the eerie story of a beached whale to the red-beetle-resistant palm trees of Athens, these stories feel like they are passed down ancient myths or half-remembered dreams. The films’ lush colours and landscapes will transport you to a surreal world and leave you wondering what is real and what is an illusion. Konstantina has shown her shorts internationally and won numerous awards including both the European Film Academy and Greek Film Academy’s award for best short film in 2014. She is currently working on her first feature.
Konstantina will join us for a Q&A following the screening, via video conference.
Morning Prayers • 2013 • 18 mins.
Washingtonia • 2014 • 24 mins.
Limbo • 2016 • 30 mins.
