‘Post-clubbing’ combines music, dance and cinema

Night clubs are not usually associated with the world of cinema yet one Athenian establishment, Club 22, is dedicating one evening a week – Wednesday – to film. In what perhaps should be called post-clubbing, the idea is to combine the traditional notion of clubbing with cultural and other events. The club’s Wednesday Expression screenings begin at 10 p.m. and admission is free. Following the evening’s films, the viewers are invited to join a party starting at 11.30 p.m., where musical tributes to the films shown earlier will alternate with disco, electro and alternative pop with DJ Kimon on the decks. All of the club’s Wednesday Expression films participated in the Drama Film Festival, and a number of them have received various awards. The screenings The following screenings have been scheduled: This Wednesday, Manos Papadakis’s Kinoumena Schedia (Animation) and Oneira Glyka tou Koutaliou (A Spoonful of Sweet Dreams) together with Yiannis Gaitanidis’s It’s Bad Luck to See the Bride Before the Wedding and Suicide. On October 17, look out for Monika Vaxevani’s Dress and John and Andre, while on October 24, Vardis Marinakis presents Danny Miles Leaves Home and Alexis Alexiou’s Do You Remember me? On October 31, there’s Lefteris Haritos’s Watch Over Me and Burning Stella as well as The End: Premiere Nights 2001. At the beginning of next month, November 7, Katerina Filiotou presents Let me Tell You and Maria Lafi will show Build Your Appetite. I come from a a family of agronomists.

I’m very familiar with agriculture and I also enjoy cooking very much.
