Main Selection

Paradise / Panayotis Fafoutis

One weekend, amid the chaos and colors of the Carnival, among the blinding lights and gaudy floats, four couples try to find their own paradise. Marina returns to Patras determined to live with Michalis; Nikos tries to express his desire for Socrates while dreading rejection; Evgenia is faced with her daughter’s criticism of her new life as a divorcee; and Ilias attempts to reunite with his ex-wife one last time. Love and questions about companionship form the basis upon which the director throws a party. The music dominates the scene and guides emotions. Behind their carnival masks, the protagonists are free to reach their limits; free at last to be real.
