Casus Belli

Yorgos Zois

Greece, 2010, 11 min., Greek


Casus Belli, the first short film of the young Yorgos Zois, has gone around the main festivals in the globe (Venice, Rotterdam, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Melbourne...) and been repeatedly awarded. Many have seen in him the perceptive and precise glance towards the consequences steaming from the crisis that stifles Greece. Filmed under a structuralist premise, Casus Bellis consists of 7 lateral tracking shots describing several queues of people (waiting in a supermarket, at a disco entrance, in a church…). In the last one, waiting at a food stand for people with no resources, the camera takes the side of an elder man, taking his point of view while he complains. The last piece of this social jigsaw puzzle gives way to an entertaining and critic coda.
