Subject: A PLACE CALLED HOME by Maria Douza screening at the Siskel this Friday and next Monday

Dear Friends,

A PLACE CALLED HOME (2013), by filmmaker Maria Douza screens at the 17th annual European Union Film Festival at the Gene Siskel Film Center this Friday, Mar 28th at 8:15pm and on Monday, Mar 31st at 8:15pm.

A PLACE CALLED HOME is a heartwarming film about family and migration. Based on a true story, it recounts how three characters of the same family, after being separated for years, come together during an Easter holiday in Greece, in a homecoming that to each means something different. Accepting migration as a major part of the human experience, the film takes a modern view on this ancient theme exploring the notion of home, in the broader sense of the place to which we always return, whether in reality or in our dreams - our homeland, our family, our childhood. Do not miss it.
