An Intermission

23rd TDF: Greek Premiere

You hardly ever see or hear anything about young homeless people, and even when they do appear in a film, the portrayal of their lives may not be very accurate. In this radically new approach to the subject, homeless youth appear not only in front of the camera, but also behind it. Experimenting with microphones and music, or coloring the film negative, working collaboratively with the filmmakers, these people create a project that exudes creativity and resilience, and above all feels completely sincere.
