Our next screening will take place on Thursday 17th March at the Cyprus Community Club of NSW (58 Stanmore Rd, Stanmore), a little earlier than usual,  at 6.30 pm.

Matriarchy (2014) 160′

Dir. Nikos Kornilios

Sixty women of diverse backgrounds, ages and nationalities, who occupy a women’s shelter, are threatened with eviction. Seven days of multiple stories, conversations, confessions, arguments and emotional high points. A film that seamlessly transcends the line between documentary and fiction, providing a fascinating insight into contemporary female and feminist discourse in Greece. Kornilios is a director whose strength lies with his work with ensemble casts and improvisation.
