World Premiere - What does a filmmaker from L.A. do when she's invited to her mother's tenth year memorial service in Athens, Greece? With this question in mind, director Angeliki Giannakopoulos sets out, camera in hand, on a heartfelt, intensely moving quest to discover the history of her family and her homeland of Athens, where her mother's memorial ceremony was to take place. Angeliki examines her roots over sumptuous dinners with her family, visits to her uncle's factory, and most importantly by rekindling her relationship with her aged father-a man who Angeliki has never understood nor forgiven for his abandonment of his family. Weaving a rich tapestry of family and community, Angeliki perfectly balances her enchanting story with a celebration of cultural customs and traditions, food and music and, above all, love. Highly emotional and intelligent, A Greek Woman is a warm love letter to one woman's heritage, a collection of reminiscences, mementos, and childhood recollections that is somehow inherently personal and glowingly universal. - Fernando F. Croce. Preceded by: The Visitor (Dan Castle, 30 min., Australia) An elderly gay man confronts memories of a long lost love when a young surfer enters his life.
