Los Angeles Premiere! “Sunday Lunch” (2015, France, 14 min. Dir. Céline Devaux) In this hilarious animated Palme d’Or nominee and winner of the Special Jury Award at the 2016 Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, Sunday lunch with the family always follows a similar pattern for James - subtle jabs at his homosexuality, invasive questions, drinking, bickering and unsolicited life advice. In French with English subtitles.

Followed by:

Los Angeles Premiere!

SUNTAN
2016, Visit Films, 104 min, Greece, Dir: Argyris Papadimitropoulos

Stationed on a small Greek island, 40-something doctor Kostis (Makis Papadimitriou) is functioning on autopilot, bored to death by the daily routine during the winter. Then the summer tourist season hits, bringing the beautiful Anna (Elli Tringou) into his clinic and opening the door to a world of youthful abandon. Kostis spends an increasing amount of time partying with Anna and her friends, but eventually someone’s bound to get burned in this sun-soaked dramedy filled with gorgeous imagery, compelling characters and a touch of Greek tragedy. In Greek and English with English subtitles.
