The Greek Film Festival 2022 closed its door on Sunday 30 Oct at Palace Cinema Como and the Astor Theatre in Melbourne. The festival will finish with the acclaimed feature, “Smyrna,my beloved”.
Filio Baltatzi, an elderly Greek American woman, goes to the island of Lesvos to help the refugees. Almost a century earlier, her family had lived on the island when they themselves were refugees, fleeing Smyrna after the destruction of the city. Filio’s grandmother’s diary records the family’s turbulent history, shaped by tragic international developments. Filio is accompanied to Lesvos by her reluctant granddaughter, and different generations of women in the same family come together in space and time, as past and present become one.
The 2022 Greek Film Festival is a community event by Greek Community of Melbourne proudly presented by Bendigo Bank.
