He was the star of the last edition of La Biennale di Venezia with his new “Poor Things”, the highly acclaimed winner of the Golden Lion that we are impatiently waiting to see in cinemas from January 2024. In the meantime, our saturday mornings at 11.00 am at Cinema Troisi will be dedicated to Yorgos Lanthimos with a complete retrospective of his films, screened in the original language with italian subtitles for a surreal journey through his obsessive filmography that has conquered the world!
Known and loved for his style, the greek director has experimented with different narratives over the years, all of them extremely sincere in staging surreal worlds, loneliness and miserable human conditions, often unmasking the contradictions of power. In showing reality in its brutality with stories that constantly move between the allegorical and the real point of view, and mix satire and dystopia, tragedy and myth, Lanthimos often seems to ask his audience to draw his own conclusions. Without any compunction on his part and avoiding any hidden messages, the director has become an active exponent of what is known as the Greek Weird Wave, a film current formed by directors born after the 1960 who bear witness in their films the effects of the global crisis on Greek society.
The complete filmography of Lanthimos will be screened at Cinema Troisi from 11 november to 16 december, every saturday morning at 11.00 am with a ticket of only € 3.00! All films will be screened in original language with italian subtitles! Here is the programme:
