North American premiere

Preceded by an optional dinner reception featuring Greek cuisine at 6:00 PM at the theater. Tickets must be reserved by May 11, no exceptions (movie tickets must be purchased separately).

The subculture of “rebetiko,” an emotionally charged storytelling and singing style that spread from poor urban communities in Greece and Turkey to the islands of the Aegean, is at the heart of this spin on Southern Europe’s current financial woes and migrant worries. The film’s eponymous heroine, a young and spirited Greek woman living on the island of Lesbos, is sent on an errand in Turkey where she meets up with a 19 year-old French girl whose plans to help migrants at the Syrian border backfire. Together they journey back to Lesbos using the same overland route taken by many Syrians today.


The screening will be followed by a discussion and rebetiko performance by: Sandra Theodorou, a musician who specializes in traditional Greek regional music and Greek urban rebetika, as well as chairperson of the Traditional Greek Music Department at Boston Lykeion Ellinidon; Kosma Vrouvlianis, a Rebetika guru and musician from Pendalofo, Greece, Dean Lambros, a santouri player from Mytilene, and Mark Pattison on baghlama.
