This epic tale, based on Varvakis' real life, moves from the Greek island of Psara to the court of Catherine the Great in Russia and the shores of the Caspian Sea, and then back to Greece, a country torn by civil war and the fight for independence, during the Revolution of 1821 against the Ottoman Empire.

Sunrise in Kimmeria (2018) by Simon Farmakas

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.

Το αγόρι στη γέφυρα | Boy on the bridge (2016) by Petros Charalambous

On Tuesday 21 September at 19:00 and on Wednesday 22 September at 21:00 the film BOY ON THE BRIDGE (Cyprus, 2016, 85 min, colour) directed Petros Charalambous will be screened in cinema Utopia, in the Greek original version with English subtitles. The film is suitable for children over 12 years old.


Synopsis



The 85-minute-long drama is director Petros Charalambous’ first feature film and is based on the novel The Land of the Golden Apple by Eve Makis. Set in the 1980’s, the coming-of-age film has as its main character 12-year-old Socrates, who finds himself involved in a murder investigation. While he looks for clues to solve the murder, he discovers that some people close to him may be involved in the crime, making him question his own identity.


In a seemingly idyllic Cyprus village, Socrates leads a life of unalloyed pleasure with his cousin and best friend Marcos - setting off homemade fireworks, tormenting local pensioners, hurtling through the village on their bicycles and defying the hapless local authorities. However, a shadow is cast over Socrates' life when he discovers that Marcos and his family are being abused by their violent father, Hambo, a gambler and a loan shark. As Socrates resolves to get to the truth before the police, he uncovers evidence that links those he loves to the crime and makes him question his own identity. Under the gloss of his idyllic surroundings lurks a dark family secret ready to turn his carefree life upside down. We follow Socrates on a thrilling and perilous journey of self-discovery as he learns the meaning of love, family loyalty and courage.

Λίγα λόγια για την ταινία


Ένας φιλόδοξος τριαντάρης σκηνοθέτης γεμάτος ψυχαναγκασμούς και σε υπαρξιακή κρίση μπαίνει σε 
περιπέτειες προσπαθώντας να μαζέψει χρήματα για την επόμενη ταινία του. Για να το καταφέρει, 
πιέζεται από την παραγωγό του να αναλάβει μια σειρά από ταπεινωτικές για τον ίδιο αναθέσεις. 
Ειλικρινά σινεφίλ και απενοχοποιημένος ως προς την τέχνη του, ο σκηνοθέτης δεν χαρίζεται ούτε στον 
εαυτό του, μέσω του οποίου σατιρίζει τις ανασφάλειες και τις αυταπάτες της υστερικής γενιάς του  millennium και την εγχώρια κινηματογραφική πραγματικότητα.
