Produced by Fenia Cossovitsa and starring/reteaming with Sofia Kokkali, the project is lensed by Konstantinos Koukoulios (Pity, 2018). Lentzou’s 2016 short “Alepou” was programmed in Locarno, and her 2017 short “Hiwa” competed in Berlin. Her 2018 short “Hector Malot: The Last Day of the Year” competed in Critics’ Week at Cannes.
Gist: Artemis, a single 24-year-old living in Paris, France, receives a frantic phone call from her mother—her father Paris is in the hospital and she must return home to Athens to care for him. Resentful of the tasking as she grew up estranged from her father, she becomes reacquainted with him over one emotional summer, learning the secret as to why their relationship was stifled.
Release Date/Prediction: Currently in post-production, Lentzou could be poised for a premiere at Cannes in Critics’ Week.
