Moon, 66 Questions

Artemis returns home to Greece to tend to her father, Paris, whose autoimmune disease causes him to lose control of his body. But the pair were never close, and Artemis isn’t sure how to handle becoming her estranged parent’s sole caregiver. Their reunion is complicated further by the physical proximity they can no longer avoid, forcing Artemis to reconcile with her complicated feelings. MOON, 66 QUESTIONS is a beautifully constructed family drama from a filmmaker with a singular perspective. Jacqueline Lentzou is not interested in conventional storytelling tropes, tempering the narrative’s difficult material with the whimsy of tarot cards, Paris’ VHS home movies and voiceover readings of Artemis’ diary, all of which bring us closer to each character’s psyche even as they hold themselves emotionally apart.
