HFS Announces December Film Selections for Always on Sunday on Demand

ASTORIA – The Hellenic Film Society USA (HFS) has announced the two award-winning films that it will stream worldwide in December as part of its Always on Sunday on Demand Greek film series, Eyes of Night and Guiness. The films began streaming on December 6 and will be available any time, from any device around the world, until Saturday, January 2, 2021.

Eyes of Night, written and directed by Periklis Hoursoglou, is a gripping drama about three flawed people in search of love and connection. Not widely seen after its initial release, the film signaled the new sophistication and world-class aspirations of modern Greek cinema. Guiness, a satire directed by Alexis Kardaras, tells the tale of a down-on-his-luck gambler trying to turn his life around. Both films are in Greek with English subtitles.

“We are delighted by the response we’ve gotten to our new streaming Greek film series, which we launched in November,” says Jimmy DeMetro, President of Hellenic Film Society USA. “This confirms our guiding principle that there is an enthusiastic audience for quality Greek films.”

Always on Sunday on Demand is an outgrowth of the Always on Sunday film series which began at the prestigious Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria in 2018. The new monthly series follows the successful virtual Greek film festival that HFS presented in July after the pandemic forced movie theaters to close indefinitely, precluding the presentation of the New York Greek Film Expo, the Society’s annual spring film festival in theaters around the New York metropolitan area.

The Hellenic Film Society USA (HFS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization rooted in the belief that Greek cinema can and should be part of the American cultural landscape. The organization promotes feature films, documentaries, and film shorts made by Greek filmmakers and those of Greek descent, as well as films that promote the cultures of Greece and Cyprus.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is the lead supporter of the Hellenic Film Society USA. Additional support is provided by Onassis Foundation USA, the Kallinikeion Foundation, Queens Council on the Arts, and the New York City Council through the office of Council Member Costa Constantinides.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
