The Greek Film Society Sydney (GFSS) invites you to our next screening at 7 pm on Wednesday 27 June at the Greek Atlas Community and Cultural Centre, 96 Illawarra Rd (old Marrickville Town Hall).
We will be screening Michael Cacoyannis’ 1992 feature ‘Up, Down and Sideways’ (100’) starring the very famous Irini Papas, Stratos Tzortzoglou and Panos Mihalopoulos. The film has English subtitles.
In this antic sex farce, a sexually vigorous older woman and her similarly active gay son have their amiable life together thrown into high confusion when they both become the love object of an apparently bisexual gym instructor who claims to be a relative of Maria Callas. Since they are both very attracted to the boy and are also fanatic fans of the opera, he gains ready entry into their lives…
(Check the special link below for more information on the film)
For those who want to catch a meal before the screening, the Centre’s kitchen will be open for a tasty and affordable meal.
Tea, coffee and refreshments also available. An informal discussion will follow the screening.
Screenings till the end of June are free. Anyone interested in Greek cinema is welcome to become a member of the GFSS which was founded on 4 April 2012. Annual membership is $50 ( $5 joining fee and $45 annual subscription for a full program) for approximately 22 films which will begin from July.
All welcome to the screening.
