The City and the City

BY Christos Passalis AND Syllas Tzoumerkas

Six episodes from the life and perils of the Jewish community of Thessaloniki and the image of the city as it is today, create a multi-character narration where two cities co-exist in the same frame: the city of Thessaloniki of the previous century and the city in its present state. A film and an installation co-created by theatre and film directors Christos Passalis and Syllas Tzoumerkas, born both in Thessaloniki in 1978 and returning creatively to their hometown for the first time. A film project that blurs the lines between fiction, documentary and essay film.

Quicksand

BY MARGOT SCHAAP

Suze lives a warm-hearted, quiet life on an island in the north of the Netherlands with her husband Lucas and bubbly six-year-old daughter Juul. When her colourful, extravagant mother Helena all of a sudden pays a visit to inform her daughter that she’s ill, Suze slowly relapses into severe compulsive behaviour. When she finally realises the suffocating nature of their relationship, Suze makes an emotional but liberating choice.
