> Four ethnocentric Greek slackers spend their days smugly watching industrious immigrants hard at work in the Plato's Academy neighborhood of Athens.  When one of the four discovers that he has Albanian roots, the men's attitudes and their friendship are severely challenged. This intelligent and insightful social satire is generally considered one of the best Greek films of recent years, praised for transcending the parameters of gentle comedy to seriously examine the issue of immigration and to attempt a redefinition of what it means to be Greek.

> Lost in the Bewilderness is a feature-length documentary about the filmmaker's cousin Lucas, kidnapped by his mother and taken out of Greece at the age of five, and found on the eve of his 16th birthday in the U.S. A stranger to his family and everything Greek, Lucas begins the process of becoming reacquainted with his family and his roots.  Part detective story, part meditation on childhood and the immutable bonds of family, Lost in the Bewilderness chronicles Lucas’s journey of growth and self-discovery and finds parallels between his experience and the themes of ancient Greek mythology and drama.
