Living Dangerously

BIOS + Πολιτεία

On the day of the World Cup Final, Karamanos, an employee of TOE (the Hellenic Telecom Organisation) connects the CEO’s personal computer to a complex explosive device. He threatens to blow up the floor and the satellite links on the upper one, unless he is allowed to appear on the national network ten minutes before the soccer match.  His aim is to denounce the evils that haunt the lives of the Greek citizens, rendering them victims of a corrupted, party-controlled state.

Nikos Perakis

Born in Alexandria, Egypt, in 1944 to Greek parents. He studied costume and stage design at the Munich Fine Arts Academy (1962–66) and worked as a set designer in minor theatrical and TV productions. After his military service (1966–69), in the “Armed Forces Television” unit, he re-emigrated and worked as a set, costume, and production designer for many notable productions in Germany and later in Greece. In 1971, he started writing, directing, and producing his own films, first in Germany and then in Greece, where he decided to settle in 2000.
