9th LAGFF OPENS TOMORROW AT THE EGYPTIAN!







LOS ANGELES GREEK FILM FESTIVAL
OPENING NIGHT FILM: LITTLE ENGLAND
Like us on Facebook
Pantelis Voulgaris' feature film departs from space and time. It follows, step by step, the unfulfilled love, the majesty of passion... Set during the 1930's and 40's on the picturesque Greek island of Andros, part of the Cyclades archipelago with a long history of military embroilment and seafaring turmoil, LITTLE ENGLAND is not only the title of this film but also the name of a shipping enterprise introduced to the viewer as the story progresses. The opening scene of rolling ocean waves and crashing surf is a forbearance of the story's schedule of turbulent events.
