Focus: Feature Film is a competition for full-length feature movies. This year’s theme is “transformation” understood as a transition to a new stage, the process of change. The authors of the competitive films did not forecast a pandemic, but they certainly sensed that we are on the threshold of great changes. 6 films from 5 countries will take part in this competition, 4 of which we are presenting as the first festival in Poland.
We finish issuing tickets 30 minutes before the screening or when there are no more left.
Senior Citizen, dir. Marinos Kartikkis (Cyprus) 2020, 84’
Theoharis, an elderly man, spends every night in the hospital. He sleeps on the benches and chairs of the outpatients’ wing because he is afraid to be alone. Every morning he returns to his house, where his only companion is his cat and his memories. One night he is discovered by a young nurse, Evgenia, who tries to learn more about him.
Film presented e.g. at Thessaloniki IFF. Polish premiere.
