A journey through the life and music of Roza Eskenazi
She was the most famous singer of the ‘30s in Greece and Turkey, the Diva of Rebetiko. With her posters displayed in every gramophone store, her Bohemian looks would drive even the toughest men crazy. (From the short story Roza, by Dinos Christianopoulos)
Roza Eskenazi sang the way she lived, with passion, fire and love.
This is the story of three young musicians from Greece, Turkey, and Israel,
who embark on an exciting musical journey, to tell the story of Greece’s
best-known and best-loved rebetiko singer for the first time on film.
It’s a journey that will take them from Istanbul to Thessaloniki and to
Athens, following the musical trail she left behind. Most of all, it’s a
journey into a world that has largely vanished, but whose sounds continue
to echo throughout the Mediterranean Basin.

An Evening with Miron Zownir and Birol Ünel
Actor Birol Ünel (Head On, Soulkitchen) reads bizarre short stories and hard boiled poetry from Miron Zownir’s book PARASITEN DER OHNMACHT.
Empathetic and venturous at the same time, he sets out on a fearless descent into existential nightmares of paranoia, violence and corruption, taking us right into the bleak souls of the lost and twisted…
