The New York-based Hellenic Film Society USA is making two critically-acclaimed Greek movies available for streaming from April 1-10.
“Blue Queen,” a mystery film, and “Holy Boom,” a powerful drama will be available through the society’s “Greek Films on Demand” monthly series. The movies are in Greek with English subtitles.
Twists and turns keep the audience guessing as four thieves compete over “Blue Queen,” one of the world’s most expensive diamonds. Greek director Alex Sipsidis brings American savvy to this smart jigsaw puzzle of a movie.
In “Holy Boom,” the lives of four strangers living in a multicultural neighborhood of Athens are upended when, on Palm Sunday, a mailbox is blasted by local teenagers, and vital documents are destroyed. Directed by Maria Lafi, the film was nominated for two Hellenic Film Academy Awards.
“The response from audiences around the world has been positive since we relaunched Greek Films on Demand in early March,” Hellenic Film Society USA President Jimmy DeMetro said. “We’re delighted to present these two exceptionally well-crafted films in April.”
This month’s programming is made possible, in part, by The Greek Online School. For further information or to purchase tickets, visit the Hellenic Film Society’s website.
