“It’s so moving and it’s so important that things like this kind of presentation of Greek films is right now going on outside of Greece. Because it’s a very special kind of moment for all of us, as you know, for a new Greek culture - in a sense, a cinematic culture - to come out from Greece and be spread in this way in various big cities in the world.”
Vangelis Mourikis, speaking at the 2011 NYC Greek Film Festival. Mourikis can be seen in three of this year’s films — Attenberg (10/24 at 9:15 pm), Knifer (pictured above; 10/29 at 9:15 pm; 10/30 at 7:15 pm), and Tungsten (10/28 at 7 pm). Click here for Mourikis’s filmography.
