The Summer with Carmen

Original language title: To kalokairi tis Karmen
Book Tix!

Intriguing, sexy and unique – this Greek comedy-drama will get under your skin, in the best way.

We meet gay best mates Demosthenes and Nikitas as they chill out on one of Athens’ picturesque cruising beaches (told you it was sexy). Together, they look back on the life-changing period when Demosthenes broke up with his partner, in the hopes of finding inspiration for a film script they’re working on. With his fresh, meta perspective on storytelling, writer-director Zacharias Mavroeidis delivers a funny, poignant look at queer relationships, friendships, intimacy – and pet ownership – set against a steamy Greek summer.
