    PITY

    Babis Makridis Greece, 2018

    We’re big fans of the “Greek Weird Wave,” and while figurehead Yorgos Lanthimos has decamped to England, there is still plenty perversely amiss in Greece.

    BIRDS (OR HOW TO BE ONE)

    Babis Makridis Greece, 2020

    Ducking and diving between fiction and documentary, this utopian paean to freedom was inspired by Aristophanes’s comedy The Birds. Pity director Babis Makridis sets loose a playful, tentative, experimental essay about humanity’s timeless quest for liberation. Where will it land? Watch to find out.

    Babis Makridis Greece, 2012

    Those looking for the next “new wave” should turn to Greece, where severe depression has inspired a truly bizarre and inspired range of films highlighted by Dogtooth’s Oscar nomination. We lead a New Greek Cinema double feature with a drolly allegorical debut, co-written by Dogtooth’s scribe.
