Ahead of Oscars, ‘Dogtooth’ is re-released

Only a few days before Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos is set to find himself seated among fellow Oscar hopefuls in Los Angeles on February 27, ?Dogtooth,? his chilling account of psychological manipulation, is being re-released in two Athenian cinemas.

The first Greek film to be nominated for a Best Foreign Languate Film Oscar since Michael Cacoyiannis?s nomination for ?Iphigenia? in 1977, ?Dogtooth? has, so far, earned awards at Cannes (Un certain regard, Prix de la jeunesse), Montreal, Sarajevo and Stockholm.

Competing alongside ?Dogtooth? on Oscar night are Mexico?s ?Biutiful,? (directed by Alejandro Gonzalez and starring Javier Bardem), Denmark?s ?In a Better World,? (directed by Susanne Bier), Canada?s ?Incendies? (directed by Denis Villeneuve) and Algeria?s ?Hors-la-loi? (directed by Rachid Bouchareb).

From February 18 to February 23, ?Dogtooth? is being screened at the following cinema theaters in Athens: Apollon, 19 Stadiou, tel 210.323.6811 at 6.30 p.m., 8.30 p.m. and 10.30 p.m.; Village [email protected] Mall, 35 Andrea Papandreou, Maroussi, tel 210.610.4100 at 6.15 p.m., 8 p.m., 10.45 p.m. and 1.00 a.m.
