43rd Drama Short Film Festival Presses “ENTER”, with Works Created at Home Laptops

September 25, 2020

DRAMA, Greece — Twelve films of the Onassis Foundation "ENTER" programme will make a leap from laptops to the big screen, where they will premiere as part of the 43rd short-film festival of Drama, taking place from September 20 to 26..

The 12 selected films of ENTER will be presented as part of a new programme dedicated to films shot during the restriction measures of the pandemic.

ENTER is a programme that emerged at the start of the pandemic. Onassis STEGI and Onassis USA presented artists from all around the world with a challenge of creating a series of new commissions from home, sharing their new reality without having access to theatres, studios and rehearsals – and doing so within 120 hours. Apartments, gardens, terraces, roads, children, husbands and wives and roommates became part of the new site-specific scenes, turning laptops into acreative superpowers.

The following ENTER films, which include works of well-known theatrical and cinema directors, choreographers and artists from all over the world, will be screened at Olympia theatre in Drama, at 18:00 on September 26:

-"Tiles" by Evi Kalogiropoulou

-"Alter Ego" by Maria Papadimitriou

-"Video 2: Body parts, fabrics and sports" by Efthimis Filippou

-"The Glove" by Eric Baudelaire

-"Slothian Days" by Kat Válastur

-"Destination Acropolis" by Simos Kakalas

-"Touch Me" by Yorgos Zois

-"Darwin, What? " by Isabella Rosselini and Paul Magid

-"st Dominique bd Arago" by Andonis Foniadakis

-"As you sleep the world empties" by Vasilis Kekatos

-"Houseplants" by Dimitris Karantzas
