The Athens Open Air Film Festival continues in August with a screening of Greek comedy-drama “The Four Seasons of the Law” (1999), directed by Dimos Avdeliodis, on Monday, August 31, at the Akadimia Platonos archaeological park in central Athens. Set in a small village on the island of Chios in the 1960s, the film follows the attempts of four men who in turn try to take over the responsibilities of a field watchman who died on the job.

The screening starts at 9 p.m. For more information on getting there, as well as the festival’s remaining events, go to www.cinemag.gr/aoaff.
