The Panorama of European Cinema starts today – October 22 at 09:00PM in Ideal Cinema with the official premiere of Guilt directed by Vassilis Mazomenos.

The film is screened as a dedication to “Cyprian Cinema” because of the 50 years anniversary of Republic of Cyprus. The film itself tells the story of Cyprus for the last 50 years through the eyes of an old weapons trader, who starts hallucinating because of an anesthetic after a surgery. The hallucinations bring the last 50 years of his life before his eyes.

Participating in the Panorama is also the Greek movie Golden Dust by Margarita Manda. The film tells the story of three brother after their parent’s death and their dilemma of whether to sell their father’s house. “Golden Dust is a fruit of my desire to speak of my city. Of Athens. One city, which transforms and erases the past,” says the director.

Participating in the Panorama will also be Francis Ford Coppola, who will present his new film Tetro – the film which will end the Panorama. Present at the event will also be Emir Kusturica, John Hillcoat and Vladimir Paskaljevic, who will also present their new films. The viewers will be able to see for the first time the new film of Jim Jarmusch The Limits of Control and Vincere by director Marco Bellocchio.

The festival will continue from October 22 until November 1 and except for dedication to the Cyprian cinema it will also include dedications to nouvelle vague films by Andrzej Wajda. The third big category of dedications is “Riot years: big economic collapse of cinema,” which will include also the film Bonnie and Clyde by Arthur Penn.

For 11 days more than 100 films from Europe and other continents will circulate the cinemas Trianon, Ideal and “Mihalis Kakoyanis” Foundation.
