Black Stone Q&A Screening

Eleni Kokkidou gives an award-winning performance in this charming mockumentary following an overprotective Greek mother searching for her missing civil servant son. Winner of the Audience Award at Trieste and Best Debut at Thessaloniki, BLACK STONE presents a sardonic yet heartfelt look at the workings of one dysfunctional Greek family. This one-off screening features a Q&A with Black Stone’s Director Spiros Jacovides & writer Ziad Semaan. FULL SYNOPSIS: While shooting a documentary about “missing” civil servants, a filmmaking duo stumble upon Charoula, a distraught, overprotective Greek mother searching for her missing son. But when his name is linked to government fraud with a foreign female accomplice, Charoula sets out her other, disabled son, Lefteris to clear his name. With the help of a taxi driver and a less than helpful group of antifa misfits, the crew follows Charoula on her quest to bring her son back home, even at the cost of uncovering some unexpected truths. WRITER BIO: Ziad Semaan has been working as a screenwriter for almost two decades. After gaining representation, he was lucky enough to work on New Line’s adaptation of the international bestseller, Foucault’s Pendulum by Umberto Eco. He has also script edited Daniel Wolfe’s debut feature Catch Me Daddy which premiered at Cannes Directors Fortnight 2014 and his follow-up feature, Sapphire. His first writing credit was the action-adventure Dead Mine, HBO Asia’s first ever original feature production and recently co-wrote Black Stone with Spiros Jacovides. Other projects in development include a Barbara Vine adaptation for Love Song Films and a feature film Healer with director Kiku Ohe. PT1H30M182024-05-07
