Friday 24 Jun 2022
Moon, 66 Questions / Greek with English subtitles / 1hr 36 mins / Cert: 15 tbc
Moon, 66 Questions focuses on Artemis who, after years of distance, has to return to Athens due to her father’s frail state of health. Discovering her father’s well-kept secret allows Artemis to understand her father in a way she was not able to before, and to love him truly for the first time.
An intimate and touching portrayal of a teenager as she is forced to reevaluate her relationship with her father, MOON, 66 QUESTIONS is the impressive debut feature of writer/director Jacqueline Lentzou, starring Sofia Kokkali (Thread) and Lazaros Georgakopoulos (The Other Me). The excellent soundtrack features tracks from bands including The Callas and Daniel Johnston.
A London Film School graduate originally born in Athens, Jacqueline Lentzou’s previous five short films have premiered at festivals including Locarno, Toronto, Berlin and Cannes and she is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including the Cine Leica Discovery Award by Semaine de La Critique for her short film Hector Malot: The Last Day of the Year. A great voice in contemporary Greek New Wave cinema.
