PARK

PARK

Athens, ten years after the Games: wilding youths, injured retired athletes, and stray dogs among ruins and decaying sports venues. Through the intersecting stories of the kids of the Olympic Village, Park tries to create the portrayal of a lost generation that has been deprived of its future. Among the abandoned sport facilities, the ruins and the new-money tourist resorts, the film crosses Greece’s glorious past with the decadence of today, depicting a society unprepared for the brutal fall.

SOFIA EXARCHOU, born in Athens in 1979, has been working as an assistant director in feature films and commercials since 2004. She has written and directed two short films, Distance and award-winning Mesecina. In 2014, she participated in the Sundance Screenwriters and Directors’ Lab. Park, her first feature film, won multiple international development awards. At the San Sebastián International Film Festival 2016, the critically acclaimed feature received the New Directors Award. // Films (selection): Apostasi (Distance, 2006, short), Mesecina (2009, short), Park (2016)
