23rd TDF: World Premiere

Over the ages, people stand helpless before the uncontrollable force of the rendering of evil. Despite the establishment of laws and moral values, the notion of vendetta remains alive. Reason is rarely in a position to tame the demon of revenge, who in ancient Greece had a name: Alastor. The film looks into the needs and roots of revenge. Lively renditions from ancient Greek tragedies intertwine with current events and experiences, looking for the answer to the troubling question: Why do we kill each other?
