Greece, 2016 // 100′
Director: Sofia Exarchou
Cast: Dimitris Kitsos, Dimitra Valgkopoulou, Enuki Gvenatadze
Park takes us into the ultimate symbol of Greek culture: the Olympic village, built for the 2004 edition of the games. The ruins of what’s left of the Olympic village are the setting of this story of wild youth and acceptance, reflecting how a nation’s culture has been left in tatters after years of imposed austerity. As the protagonist, the 17 year old Dimitris, is trying to run away from this reality, we take a deep look into the struggle of a generation growing up without a future.
