Dear Members and Friends,

The House of Cain (2000) 80’ (Dir. Christos Karakepelis)

A journey into the dark inner world of seven convicted murderers. Korydallos prison inmates reveal themselves through confessional stories of contrition over acts committed in moments of rage or mental disturbance. Through the interiors of the prison, courts, morgue and other sites, this powerful documentary takes us deep into the conscience of damaged men and women. A haunting sound track by Thanos Mikroutsikos compliments this outstanding work.
