A Blast

A Blast · dir. Syllas Tzoumerkas
Greece, The Netherlands, Germany 2014, 83’
Polish premiere


20 October, 20:00 · Kino Centrum

Maria is running away on the highway. She is alone in her roaring SUV. Behind her, fire and a case full of money. In front of her, the hopeless vastness of the motorway. Only a day before she was a caring mother, a loving wife, a responsible daughter. Today she has gone rogue.

As Syllas Tzoumerkas put it: “Set in the fervent years of the collapse of the Greek economy, A Blast tells the story of a generation’s disillusionment and radicalization. Maria starts her adult life with the best of intentions. Ten years after, no matter where she looks her world is cracking. Unwilling to reconcile with a life of unreturned care, lost dignity and broken-down desire to live, Maria attacks. She attacks herself, her past, the people she loves, her country and the perception of her sex in a relentless battle to find truth, in her and around her.”

Syllas Tzoumerkas was born in Thessaloniki. He studied theater, film-direction and acting in Athens, Utrecht and New York. He first made an impression with the ‘dogma’-like short film The Devouring Eyes. After collaborating with prime TV-documentary shows on episodes related to political affairs and the 20th century history and literature, he directed his feature film debut Homeland, a bitter saga about a family and a country in free fall.
