Lenaki, the Curse of Fire


26th TIDF: World Premiere

The forgotten case of the arson of an ancestral tower in Peloponnese, Greece, comes to light with the discovery of a manuscript. The interreligious romance between Eleni and Elmaz-aga, close to the 1821 uprising against the Ottomans, and a parental curse, haunt the history of the family and of the village alike. The folk song of Eleni leads to the awakening of a past that resembles a fairytale.
