Greek Film Festival 2019 Opening Night: 1968

(2018, dir. Tassos Boulmetis, w/ Alexandros Amerikanos, Antonis Antoniou, Maria Antoulinaki, Orfeas Avgoustidis)

April 4th, 1968. The Kallimarmaro Stadium is abuzz, with thousands of people gathered and millions listening through their radios. The AEK – Slavia Prague basketball game has just begun. A girl in love is dreaming of her wedding day, while the future husband becomes more desperate with every Greek ball going through the hoop. An elderly husband and wife remember the home they left behind. A young communist prisoner cheers from his jail cell and a PROPO betting shop becomes the place where old and new wounds resurface. Years before this night, three Constantinopolitans decided to create an athletic union that will tell their story. At the end of this night, Greek history will have changed forever. Fourteen years after his smash hit A Touch of Spice, Tassos Boulmetis returns with another voyage of nostalgia exploring legendary Greek events from the 20th century. (IMDB)
