The Ciné-Club Héllenique in Luxembourg's screenings of Yorgos Avgeropoulos’ documentary “Up to the last drop” and Antonis Boskoitis' short film “Letters to Germany” will take place on 22 May at 1900 and 23 May 2018 at 2100 at the Utopia cinema.
On both the Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, the documentary Up to the last drop (Greece, 2017, 58 min, colour, English subtitles) by Yorgos Avgeropoulos will be screened in Utopia.
The evenings will start with the short film Letters to Germany (Greece, 2015, 14 min, no dialogue, B&W) by Antonis Boskoitis, who will attend in person to present his film.
Up to the last drop discusses a period of crisis in Europe. As the continent is going through a crisis that is not solely economical but also a crisis of moral values, millions of European citizens demand a response to a crucial question is water for the European Union a commercial product or a human right? At the same time, cities, regions and countries all around the world are increasingly rejecting the water privatization model they had adopted for years and are remunicipalising services in order to take back public control over water and sanitation management. Up To The Last Drop follows the money and the corporate interests during a period of four years in thirteen cities of six EU countries. It is a documentary film about water that reflects contemporary European values and the quality of the current European democracy.
Meanwhile, the short film – set in Greece in 1961 – tells the tale of a father’s refusal to accept the death of hi son who immigrated to Germany. A poetic, silent film, filmed in black and white, partly in Luxembourg, with original music by Eleni Karaindrou.
Both films are suitable for children over 14 years.
