The Greek Film Society Sydney will be hosting a screening of 2020 award winning comedy-drama Tailor this Thursday night at the Greek Atlas Community Cultural Centre in Marrickville.

Directed by Greek-German Sonia Liza Kenterman, Tailor is about a gentle and artistic tailor whose artisan trade is in danger of becoming a relic of the past.

It is a coming-of-old-age story about an eccentric tailor who doesn’t quite fit into the world and has isolated himself.

Set during Greece’s financial crisis which gives it a contemporary dimension, as the small trade shops of central Athens are disappearing.

Nikos played by Dimitris Imellos, is an obsessive character who decides to survive with his trade in an inventive and surprising way.

Described as a gentle and quietly humorous film which through its rhythms and musical score, matches the tailor’s delicate relationship to fabrics.

The film was the winner of Bergamos Film and Directors Award (2021), Youth Jury and International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) awards, Thessaloniki Film Festival (2020) and Mostra de València-Cinema del Mediterrani nominee for Best Film Award (2019).

They are also hoping that a Q&A will be held with the director after the screening.

Kenterman, who is also a writer, is a London Film School graduate. She studied sociology, theatre and worked as a production designer and assistant director in Greece, before deciding to focus solely on directing.

Her background and education influence the themes and visual style of her work, and she is interested in emotionally charged stories about ordinary people forced to make choices due to extraordinary external circumstances.

When: Thursday February 29, 7pm. Centre’s restaurant open from 6pm

Where: Greek Atlas Community and Cultural Centre, 96 Illawarra Rd, Marrickville
