ART & DOCS: Obsessive Talents

February 5-11 2015

The Greek Film Archive and Exile Room present a documentary showcase dedicated to the obsessive nature of artistry. From February 5 to 11, a handful of award-winning directors attempt to document the elusive nature of talent: comics, erotica, street photography, avant garde cinema, classic masterpieces and near abominations all parade in front of the camera, for your eyes only! A hand-picked selection local fine artists and curators will “adopt” the films, exploring the limits of artistic expression.

The event will be complemented by the presence of British filmmaker Sophie Fiennes, who will introduce her last two documentaries, “The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema” and “Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow”, and will deliver a masterclass on merging fine art with documentary.

All shows will take place at the Greek Film Archive
