The Hellenic Film Society USA is screening “Suntan” and “Xenia,” two award-winning Greek films about relationships through Sunday, May 15.
Both films — which boast 12 Hellenic Film Academy Awards collectively — are in Greek with English subtitles and have adult themes.
In “Suntan,” a middle-aged doctor having a midlife crisis becomes obsessed with a young, hard-partying tourist during a summer on the island of Antiparos.
The film, directed by Argyris Papadimitropoulos and starring the popular Greek actor, Makis Papadimitriou, is the winner of six Hellenic Film Academy Awards, including Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actor.

Complicated relationships of a different kind are found in “Xenia,” in which two distant brothers set out to find the father who abandoned them as children. While their relationship is conflicted, the protective fraternal bond they share makes the film both compelling and disarmingly engaging.
“Xenia” was an official selection at Cannes and is the winner of six Hellenic Film Academy Awards, including Best Film and Best Director.

“The Hellenic Film Society is proud to present two beautiful films about complicated, compelling characters,” Hellenic Film Society President Jimmy DeMetro said. “Both ‘Suntan’ and ‘Xenia’ force the audience to look at these characters in a new light.”
