17th June 2020, Los Angeles – Recent events have forced the Cannes Film Market to hold its first ever virtual film market. EuroObscura will take part presenting the film EXILE, the new surreal drama from Greek director Vassilis Mazomenos.
EXILE is a drama about the Greek crisis revolving around the fate of a modern Ulysses, captured by coast guards while adrift in the ocean and forced to reenter his own country as a foreigner, living as a refugee and descending into a spiral of transgression, violence and madness. Best feature nominee at the latest edition of Fantasporto and winner of the 2nd Best Feature Award at the London Greek Film Festival, EXILE is a parable about the destiny of an ancient country after the peak of its crisis.
Vassilis Mazomenos is a Greek director, writer and producer, as well as a member of both the European Film Academy and the Greek Film Academy.

EXILE – Best Feature Nominee Fantasporto 2020
Greece, 2020 – 110 minutes – Drama – English
Aris, despairing and desperate, attempts to leave Greece on a barely sea-worthy boat. After being rescued from drowning by the Coast Guard, he now returns as a foreigner in his own ruined country. There he experiences every kind of transgression as an outcast of the system. He steals; he becomes a slave and kills. He tries to survive off the grid. Is this the story of a modern Ulysses or the nightmare of the 21st Century everyman?
