Pantzis film goes to Athens

By Ninos Feneck Mikelides

    Andreas Pantzis' newest feature documentary George Seferis, the Poet in the Country of the Eclipse, will head to Athens to screen in the Panorama of European Cinema film festival in October.

    Following the festival, the film will receive a theatrical release in Athens.

    Pantzis (The Rape of Aphrodite, The Slaughter of the Cock) had expected to screen the film at the last Thessaloniki film festival, but had to withdraw it at the last minute due to technical problems that kept it from meeting Greek National Committee deadlines.

    The film was co-financed by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus and Greek State Television (ERT). It was shown in Berlin as part of the Cyprus Spring event. ERT represents the film for international sales.
