Tribute to groundbreaking American writers through the magic of the 7th art
In this new festival of screenings of fiction films and documentaries, prominent Greek writers, directors, and actors introduce films that draw on the rich literary world of renowned American authors like such as Truman Capote, Tennessee Wiliams, Nobel Laureate Ernest Hemingway, and Alice Walker, the first African American woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. In this evening’s event, John Mulholland’s Cooper & Hemingway: The True Gen will be screened.
The film explores an unexpected friendship between two giants of the arts: Gary Cooper (winner of two Academy Awards) and Ernest Hemingway (Nobel Prize laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner). The friendship between these completely opposite characters, one a conservative, the other a liberal, is also a study of the 20th century.

Introduction: To be announced
