Animal

Under the hot Greek sun, the animateurs at an all-inclusive island resort prepare for the busy touristic season. “Nonna” Kalia is the leader of the pack. Paper decors, glossy costumes, characters reminiscent of famous pop personas and dance shows fill the hotel’s stage. As summer intensifies and the pressure of their everyday grind builds up, Kalia’s nights turn violent and her wild summer story is revealed in the darkness. But when the spotlights are turned on again, her show must go on.

A NIGHT OF RIOTS

During a riot in the streets of Cyprus, a man of Arabic descent attempts to find shelter inside the house of a Cypriot family.

The film explores the difficulties that a refugee needs to overcome, the grief that can divide a family, but above all, it focuses on the power of a mother’s love.
