Argyris Papadimitropoulos’ Film ‘Monday’ Opens in Los Angeles April 16

LOS ANGELES – Argyris Papadimitropoulos' latest feature film, titled Monday, began screening at the Laemmle Royal in Santa Monica and Laemmle Playhouse 7 in Pasadena, on April 16, according to the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival (LAGFF).

Papadimitropoulos has visited LAGFF several times as a director and producer.

So far, as a director, he has four feature films under his belt- Bang Bang (2008), Wasted Youth (2011), Suntan (2016), and Monday (2020) and a number of short films.

As producer, his credits include Monday (2020), Amerika Square (2016) (production advisor), Suntan (2016), At Home (2014), Boy Eating the Bird's Food (2012), Wasted Youth (2011), and many short films.

In 2012, he won an LAGFF Orpheus Award for Wasted Youth.

His latest film, Monday, stars Sebastian Stan and Denise Gough as lovers in Greece who try to turn a fling into a relationship. Stan is perhaps best known for his role as Bucky Barnes/the Winter Soldier in the Captain America films and in the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Irish actress Gough is a two-time Olivier Award winner.

Monday also includes many LAGFF friends and frequent collaborators among its production team, such as cinematographer Hristos Karamanis, music composer Alexis Grapsas, and producers Deanna Barillari, Fred Berger, Fenia Cossovitsa, Damian Jones, Brian Kananaugh-Jones, and Christos V. Konstantakopoulos.

LAGFF’s 15th celebratory edition is coming up May 10-30 with the newest crop of features, documentaries, animation, and shorts, curated by the programming team, and available on the LAGFF secure industry-standard platform, accompanied by a host of webinars and live or pre-recorded Q&As.
