Miss Violence

This movie screening is a part of a program of Panorama Europe film festival of new european films. Known as Disappearing Act for its first five years, the newly re-named festival continues the mission of showcasing vital European filmmaking as distribution remains challenging for foreign language films in the United States. Panorama Europe gives New York audiences access to what may be their only chance to see these acclaimed films from the festival circuit on the big screen or at all. This year’s festival will take place at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria and at the Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan. It was programmed by David Schwartz, Chief Curator at Museum of the Moving Image.

With Alexandros Avranas and Eleni Roussinou in person 
Presented by the Greek Consulate and the Onassis Foundation (U.S.A.) 

Greece. Dir. Alexandros Avranas. 2013, 99 mins. Digital projection. U.S. premiere.With Themis Panou, Eleni Roussinou, Reni Pittaki. Unhappy birthday: The day of her party, 11-year-old Angeliki jumps to her death from her family’s fourth-floor balcony. The ensuing investigation into her seemingly inexplicable suicide gradually reveals unspeakable horrors lurking beneath the family’s eerily placid surface. The latest in the remarkable wave of iconoclastic new Greek cinema that yielded Dogtooth and Attenberg, Miss Violence unfolds with a skin-crawling sense of deadpan detachment before it explodes in shattering tragedy.
