‘Disconnect Me’ by Alex Lykos added to line-up at Greek Film Festival in Sydney


The Greek Festival of Sydney, proudly supported by Bank of Sydney, and in collaboration with Palace Cinema Norton Street Leichhardt, announces a special addition to its 28th Greek Film Festival’s films – the thought-provoking documentary Disconnect me by Alex Lykos.

Can you live without your phone? Disconnect Me examines the ever-pervasive role of technology in our lives.

Directed by Alex Lykos (Alex & Eve, Me & My Left Brain), the film centres around Alex who disconnects from his smartphone for a full 30 days. How will he and those around him react? What will be the effects on his life? Along the way, Alex investigates the social impacts of the smartphone and social media, interviewing children, teenagers and adults.

Alex’s new film will not only provide “food for thought,” but it will also engage, stimulate and make the audience re-evaluate on how connected they are to their electronic devices or how badly they need to disconnect to follow up with their lives in a digital-defied environment.   

The film will be screened on Tuesday, October 24 at 7pm at Palace Norton Street Leichhardt and it will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
