Event description

Description

Director: Alexandros Voulgaris
Year: 2016
Duration: 93 mins
Country: Greece

Official Selection: LA Film Festival, Thessaloniki International Film Festival, Göteborg Film Festival

Irish Premiere

Political revolutionary Niki and her son Lefteris live in a world bound by memory, sexual nightmares, and the political chaos of Greece in the 1970s. Their existence is a claustrophobic fever dream in which one face merges into the next, meshing fantasy and horror. The result is a head trip that manages to defy the conventions of genre by crafting a savage meditation, oscillating among political aggression, motherhood and violence as protest.

Writer/director Alexandros Voulgaris and lead Sofia Kokkali create an experience unlike any other, challenging the values of contemporary society with a unique cinematic articulation. Both vibrant and horrifying, Thread is Greek cinema at its most brutal and experimental; a burning hallucination that brands your brain and won't let you wake up.

– Adam Piron, LA Film Festival
