ArTherapy
Filmfest 2010

Summer in the city. In the heart of the historic and multicultural center of Athens, the paths of three young art students cross. Ilia, front woman in the band 'Stiletto Scag', is searching for stardom. Alexandros, a street artist, has to finish a mural for his sponsor. And Andreas, a senior at the National Theatre School of Drama, is trying to make ends meet while rehearsing exhaustively for his finals. Three days are enough to disrupt the "social truce" and their expectations are shattered by the establishment, whether it be in the form of the cops or simply mainstream Greek culture. Production Notes "Perakis' latest film is not exactly a documentary nor is it your typical narrative, but a fusion of the two and, in its heart and soul, a love letter to the young generation of a country that wants to devour them. But they resist." G.Zoumboulakis TO VIMA, 14.03.10 "Art therapy for an economic crisis." xpatathens.com
