Oh my, it’s been a while, huh? Well, here we are again and boy, do we have good news for you! If you’re in Athens, you can come meet us at the Athens Technopolis on Friday, April 22, as Mana will be screening at 7:45pm sharp! Valerie will be on hand for a Q&A session, so go ahead and ask her whatever you want! The film screens as part of a tribute to Greek cinema, called “Eyes Wide Open” running April 21-24. You can find the full line-up HERE. The event is co-organised by our very own Exile Room and it includes a short tribute to Syrian documentary, as well as a very handy workshop on short-form docs, exclusively focused on immigrant documentaries. Filmmakers Tala Derki (Return to Homs) and Amer Matar (co-founder of the Syrian Mobile Phone Festival) will lead the discussion on how to create an online platform that will communicate the immigrant experience in Greece, right here and right now, and you simply can’t afford to miss it. You can sign up for the workshop HERE
Last but not least, Mana will be available on Vimeo on Demand soon, so check back here for more good news. See you at Technopolis!
