Love According to Wogs

Love According to Wogs

Director Koraly Dimitriadis and Nathan Little
Australia, 2013, 5mins (Short)

“Look, let’s go back to the manuscript… you tell us how angry Ella is, but I don’t feel her anger…”

Over a casual coffee at a café in the northern suburbs of Melbourne with her mentor, Christos Tsiolkas, ‘Good Greek Girl’ Koraly Dimitriadis launches into a heartfelt, bombastic diatribe.

Her spoken word/poetic rant challenges traditional notions of love, family and duty. She pointedly questions the sometimes-irreconcilable cultural difficulties that face young people from migrant backgrounds whose parents still cling to the cultural mores of the ‘old country’.
