We first saw the film «Prosefhi» at Drama film festival, where the film actually won the fist prize. The young director, Thanasis Neofotistos manages to create a breathtaking realistic and at the same time dreamlike atmosphere with his cinematography. Both the two protagonists act wonderfully, especially the main character, Dimitris, who has a haunting face full of emotions in his very mature performance.
Prosefhi: Greek School Prayer is basically a short film about the problems of young students at school and dealing with the arising bullying phenomenon. At a second level, the film is about the coming of age, the right to defer and the awakening of sexual awareness.
This film is another result of new Greek cinema's creative power and we are looking forward to see the director's -Thanasis Neofotistos'- first feature film.
