The 7th Castellorizo International Documentary Film Festival “Beyond Borders” will open its curtain on August 21.

The film festival will take place on the island of Castellorizo from August 21 to August 28.

The opening film of this year’s event will be the 2020 IDFA Award-winning “Radiograph of A Family” by acclaimed director Firouzeh Khosrovani.

It is a film of experimental cinematic form and fluid audiovisual representations that takes place against the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution of the late 1970s. In the film, Khosrovani tells a love story that splits when personal paths and individual desires no longer converge.

During the ceremony, the photographic exhibition ‘Attic Land Welcomes the Refugees of 22’ will also be opened. The exhibition is organised by the Hellenic Parliament Foundation for Parliament and Democracy.

The opening ceremony will close with a musical performance dedicated to Hellenism. Through Smyrnaic, Rebetiko and Pontic song, a musical feast full of melodies is promised, reminding us that the music we have today is not only a combination of sounds and rhythms but of memories, feelings and experiences of joy and pain of an entire people.

The Opening Ceremony will be presented in a live streaming broadcast by the Athens-Macedonian News Agency, which can be accessed here.
