Acouse Me (Listen)


Financial upheaval forces a teenage deaf girl, Valmira 16, to leave her progressive Athens school and return to her father’s struggling island where she is confronted by the danger of prejudice and intolerance, most shockingly — her own.

The Promotion


It is 2012. Nikos lives in Athens. He is a film director who teaches film direction at the University of Thessaloniki. Today, he will ask his father, Mr. Andrikos, to accompany him to the swearing-in ceremony for his promotion at the University. A father-son train journey ensues, with time running backward.



Set in the world of Greece’s urban-folk music scene of the 90s, the film depicts the fatal relationship between a young singer and an elder songwriter and her mentor.
