The first screening will take place on Thursday 15 April at 7:00 pm at Greek Atlas Community and Cultural Centre, 96 Illawarra Rd, Marrickville (entry at rear of building), with the award-winning film The Right Pocket of the Robe/Η δεξιά τσέπη του ράσου (2018) directed by Giannis Lapatas.
Summary: The lone inhabitant of a monastery, a middle-aged monk, faces the death of his beloved dog and the survival of his new-born pups just as the Archbishop dies and the worldly business of succession begins. The dog’s death signals the return of an unbearable sadness and loneliness in the monk’s life which brings up the past and forces him to reappraise his solitary course. A tender cinematic evocation of monastic life and study in loneliness.
An adaptation of Yannis Makridakis’ novel of the same name, the film was winner of the Youth Jury Award at the Thessaloniki Film Festival.
You can watch the trailer on YouTube.
