KERR

A political thriller

Turkey - Greece - France 2019

There is a train and a choice: you get on or not. That’s all.

 

C is waiting at the train station, about to return home from attending his father's funeral, when he witnesses a murder. Should he get on the train, or report the murder to the police? He chooses the latter, and quickly finds himself prohibited from leaving town, then engulfed by a bizarre atmosphere that surrounds the area.

Various strange friends of his father become entangled in his predicament. The wife of the murder victim, who also nursed his father, tells him to leave town and warns of an approaching threat. The prosecutor accuses him of the crime and he decides to flee, but the town is now in quarantine due to a rabies epidemic. The murderer then unexpectedly appears, creating further perplexity for C. The peculiar connections among the townsfolk make him gradually more anxious and incapable of comprehending his absurd situation. C hides from the police, fruitlessly attempts to run away, and finds the country’s borders closed. 

The film intends to capture the situation of a destructive society decaying through the main character, who's lack of political understanding makes him the victim of this corruption.

MEMORY RELOADED 

​Feature - Sci-fi Film

Sometimes it’s better not to remember…                                          

In a post-digital era, an isolated community lives inside a self-sustaining extraordinary City-Building and safeguards the human knowledge. A young man unexpectedly appears and gets emotionally involved with two different and spirited women; none of them though can get out of there.

An isolated bureaucratic society is living inside an impressive Dome: a building-womb which nurtures its inhabitants for centuries, even disposes their cadavers when they die. Or is it also killing them? Facing unexpected ecological disasters, people turn to a newcomer for salvation, even if he cannot remember where he came from and why.

INTO THE LAND OF ICE AND FIRE

A feature documentary 

After fifteen years of researching and photographing the European arctic landscape and its indigenous inhabitants, the SAMI, the only indigenous people of Europe, the director Dimitra Zirou begins to film a documentary inspired by this distant land and its people.

Two parallel stories - portraits, are gradually unfolding, the everyday life of two very different persons, both living in a distant small town in the middle of the Norwegian arctic tundra.

Sara is now 83 years old and one of the few remaining traditional healers. Her past and present life is vividly colored with the indigenous knowledge of her people. Mihka is 5 years old,a small Sámi that lives with his parents and his little sister near Sara. Spontaneous, explosive but also sweet, he is in the beginning of his training on the basic knowledge of his tribe.

 

The connecting link between him and Sara is his grandmother Asta, her closest friend. Together they begin a learning relationship, while she tells him a story about the Northern Lights, the celestial light that illuminates the dark, during the long and frozen Arctic nights

SCAR

A SHORT – BLACK COMEDY FILM

“Scar” is based on the short story that won The Greek State Award for Short Story and the British Council Best Short Story Award by Christos KYTHREOTIS.

Ιt’s a cloudy, rainy morning in a cemetery on a neighborhood in the western part of Athens. A young man is trying to trying to decide what to do with the body of his grandmother after her customary exhumation. The body has not decomposed sufficiently. The two cemetery employees are not helpful. 

While the son is struggling to find a dignified solution about how to handle his grandmother’s remains, nature functioning as deus ex machina gives him the answer. A sudden rainstorm resolves the situation by abruptly speeding up the decomposition process and providing the story with an unexpected, realistic and tragicomic ending.

The project was awarded the Pitching Lab Award by Finos Film during the 41st National Short Film Festival in Drama.

Script adaptation and direction by: Thanos PSΙCHOGIOS

CITIES NOT BUILD

Documentary Film

How and where I would like to live? An adventurous journey to utopia.

In humanity’s history all the things that happened but also the things that didn’t happen play a great role. Those that stayed in the ideal sphere and as such they affect our expectations. The cities that haven’t been build, as places of models for the sublime happiness, or as a dark environment that we would never like to meet. They are images that are been projecting all over around us as shadows of another alternative reality through architectural designs, cinema, literature, and comics or even through the images of the adverts.

In intense community crisis, such as the today’s, the interest for utopia is rekindled by the meaning of the need to find answers for the problems we face. So, this is our deeper motive, the one that will make this documentary charming/attractive to the audience.
