Chevalier (Greece)

WEDNESDAY JULY 26, 2017 |   Pre-screening performance begins at 7PM, Film begins at sundown

Chevalier (Greece)
Directed by Athina Rachel Tsangari; 2016, 99 mins.

A.O. Scott in The New York Times says this Greek comedy “presents itself as a quasi-scientific look at human male pack behavior in the wild.” What passes for the wild here is a luxury yacht on which a half-dozen middle-aged, middle-to-upper class men ward off boredom by competing to determine who is “the best in general,” with a karaoke performance of “Lovin’ You” a notable highlight. “An inspired, gorgeously photographed work of deadpan lunacy.” – Aaron Hillis, Village Voice

This week’s pre-screening entertainment features a traditional Greek dance performance by the Greek American Folklore Society and world music infused Greek tunes from George Stathos’ Karavanee Orkestra. Classic greek cuisine will be available on-site from Zenon Taverna.
