Greece, 2014

Running Time


A haunting score, the myth of the Minotaur and disenchanted Athenian youth.

Filmmaker Emy Tzavra-Bulloch creates a melancholic allegory in which one of Greek mythology’s most tragic and fascinating stories – the tale of Theseus and the Minotaur – is used to depict the hopelessness of young people in today’s Athens.

Sacrificing their dreams of a tomorrow for the realities of today, the desperation of modern-day Athenian youth bears striking resemblance to ancient forebears so long ago.

Winner of Best Fantasy Film at Euro Film Festival in Spain.
