Synopsis

EXARCHEIA takes you on a dreamy nocturnal stroll through one of Greece’s most politically active neighbourhoods, situated in the heart of Athens, just below the Acropolis. In this lively and mythical space, you meet a coterie of characters whose ideals and aspirations are in constant flux. Set against the backdrop of the economic crisis, EXARCHEIA is a poetical and polyphonic essay that dives into a place where living together is first and foremost a matter of shared speech and hopes held in suspense.

Director

Gomez, Nadine

Passionate about urban planning and cinema, Nadine Gomez has developed, over the years, a deep interest in photography and video. Social and urban transformations, as well as the concept of identity as something emerging from our architectural and historical environment, modern ruins, are all issues that feed her reflection. Graduate from Journalism at UQÀM, she got her Masters’ degree in Communication by offering a comparison between journalism and the window of architecture.

She directed two short documentaries, The Horse Palace (2012), and Metro (2015), which helped her to develop and deepen her creative process. Since 2010, Nadine is also part of Diffusion Multi-Monde where she works as Head of distribution and marketing in theatres and festivals.
