At home ~ Στο Σπίτι (2014) by Athanasios Karanikolas

On Tuesday 20 December at 19:00 and on Wednesday 21 December at 21:00 the film At home (Greece, 2014, colour, 103 min) by d'Athanasios Karanikolas will be screened in cinema Utopia in the original Greek version with English subtitles. Not suitable for children under 16 years.


Nadja lives with Stefanos, his wife Evi and their daughter Iris in a house on the coast of the Aegean Sea. The days pass by uneventfully: Stefanos goes off to work, Evi earns a bit of cash as a translator, and Nadja ensures they have nothing else to worry about. Officially she is their housemaid, but it’s clear she means much more to them. She is an integral part of the family: she’s Iris’s second mother and Evi’s confidante. Nadja attributes the fatigue and weakness she has been feeling of late to her concerns for her daughter, who lives abroad, and also to the intense summer heat. A professional diagnosis unfortunately tells a different story, yet Nadja confronts this difficult situation with characteristic dignity. This intimate drama, unfolding within the walls of a single house, questions human solidarity at a time when Greece is endeavouring to overcome its economic crisis. In the face of uncertainty and the possibility that they might have to relinquish some of their comforts, the protagonists are aware that it might be easier to close their eyes than to open their hearts and assume responsibility for others.
