Athens Open Air Film Festival
The Crying Game (1992)
The 8th Athens Open Air Film Festival collaborates with Athens & Epidaurus Festival
One of the best 90s films (winner of Academy Award for best original screenplay), the story revolves around a former IRA member who seeks redemption and love and ends up starting an affair with the girlfriend of one of his victims. However, nothing is as it seems in the deceptive universe spun by the great Irish filmmaker. A combination of political thriller, modern noir and erotic drama, and a complex meditation on the mysterious nature of human sexuality and morality.
The screening is supported by the Embassy of Ireland in Greece. Before the film, a selection of queer-themed animated shorts will be screened, in cooperation with Animasyros - International Animated Festival, as part of Athens Pride.
