Main Cast: August Lambrou-Negrepontis, Dimitris Xanthopoulos

After his compelling drama Black Field (2010), Greek director Vardis Marinakis returns with a film borne on the back of a juvenile performance of remarkable intelligence and spontaneity. Zizotek is a beguiling and provocative story, which centres around nine-year-old Jason; starting out as a family drama of parental neglect it soon transitions into a film about friendship and ultimately survival. With a riveting lead performance and an uncanny dreamlike mood, this touching tale of mutual harmony and the yearning for intimacy captivates audiences with its poetic depiction of nature as a refuge for those rejected by the people around them. For those who love film, this will be a festival highlight.
