As a mountain village in Greece sinks under the lake, the memories of its inhabitants emerge from the water.
Thanasis Trouboukis
Thanasis Trouboukis explores cinema on the fluid border between fiction and documentary. His work questions memory, reality, dreams and the ambiguity between them. He is a graduate of Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains in France, as well as an alumnus of Sarajevo Talents (Pack & Pitch 2020). His short films have been selected by numerous festivals, among them Palm Springs International Shortfest, Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, Sarajevo Film Festival, CPH:DOX, Hong Kong IFF, Vienna Shorts, Festival du Film Court de Villeurbanne, Filmfest Dresden ISFF, Documenta 14, Athens IFF and Thessaloniki IFF. He is currently developing his feature-length directorial debut, Lionfish, supported by Centre national du cinéma et de l'image animée (CNC).
