The New Waves
SPANISH PREMIERE

MOON, 66 QUESTIONS

Jacqueline Lentzou | Greece, France | 2021 | 109 min
O.V in French and Greek subtitled in Spanish and English

In tune with the best of recent Greek cinema, this debut film is divided into chapters marked by tarot card patterns and punctuated by diary entries illustrated through lo-fi daydreams and VHS tapes. Thus we enter the story of Artemis, who at the age of 24 has to return home after years away, to look after an obnoxiously silent father, with no support from a ghosting mother. A summer of introspection and reassessment for Artemis, who will find a possible path to change through a long-kept secret.
