POSTCARDS FROM THE END OF THE WORLD
Trapped in their marriage, Dimitra and Dimitris try to endure their summer vacation with their two daughters on a remote island. Unexpectedly, human civilization collapses.
Director Konstantinos Antonopoulos’s use of zoom and well paced voice-over created a singular tone and the feeling of a world collapsing. The end was so touching. I wasn’t expecting to cry. I wasn’t expecting the ten minutes I spent in solitude after watching it, pondering my own life choices. Postcards is certainly a film of this "covid moment” without having anything to do with a pandemic. It asks us if a "return to normal" is really a good thing. Watch the film and see for yourself. — Erin (Artistic Director)
