Pity at the Onassis Cultural Centre


The macabre meets the comical in Pity, which, following on from its selection for the International Competition section at the Sundance Film Festival, receives its Greek premiere at the Onassis Cultural Centre (28 September – 7 October 2018).

Ηow does unhappiness mix with happiness? Our hero’s daily ritual begins with a satiating sobbing session in his bedroom.

When tragedy knocks on his door, the people around him stand by his side. Drawing a sense of satisfaction from all the compassion, kindness and attention of his peers, the middle-aged lawyer becomes addicted to their pity, so much so that he now feels unhappy when he’s happy and he’s happy only when he’s unhappy.
He cannot accept other people’s unhappiness, only his own, and while most people strive for happiness, our hero strives for unhappiness.

The macabre meets the comical in Pity, which, following on from its selection for the International Competition section at the Sundance Film Festival and its success on the international festival circuit, receives its Greek premiere at the Onassis Cultural Centre.

In Greek with English subtitles.
