2016 Oscar® Selection, Greece
Athina Rachel Tsangari (ATTENBERG) won the Golden Leopard at the 2016 Locarno Film Festival for this outlandish satire of male camaraderie and competition. Six middle-aged men venture out to sea on a luxury yacht, an annual tradition where they compete in an Olympiad of bizarre games of ridiculous one-upmanship in order to crown one of them the winner, worthy of wearing the "chevalier" victory signet ring. Best Film, 2015 London Film Festival; Best Screenplay, 2016 Hellenic Film Academy Awards; Official Selection, 2015 Locarno, Toronto, New York and Vancouver film festivals; 2016 SXSW, New York, Transylvania and Gothenburg film festivals. DIR/SCR Athina Rachel Tsangari; SCR Efthymis Filippou; PROD Maria Hatzakou, Christos V. Konstantakopoulos. Greece, 2015, color, 105 min, DCP. In Greek with English subtitles. NOT RATED
