Main Selection

Magic Hour / Costas Kapakas

The surrealist side of a personal crisis against the backdrop of the economic crisis. The film also answers primordial questions – such as: Is dying like taking off or like landing? When your lover cheats on you should you laugh or cry? Is it better to owe than to be owed to? If there is indeed money, as our prime minister claimed before he was elected, why are we all broke? And if there is no money, why are we still making films? – and ends up observing that life is nothing more than a constant struggle against the terrible force of gravity.
