SON OF SOFIA

Winner of the best international narrative feature prize at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, Greek writer-director Elina Psikou’s second feature is a visionary fusion of realism and fable.

Following a painful two-year separation, Misha, a Russian boy, is reunited with his beloved mother Sofia in Athens, where she constructs toy animals for a living. Misha’s relief proves short-lived, however: his mother lives and works for Mr. Nikos, a bossy old man who once starred in a television show in which he performed fairy tales, playing every character himself.

Set during the 2004 Summer Olympics, Son of Sofia captures Greece in a moment of anticipation, just as it captures Misha in a moment of precarious transition. Exploring identity, desire and fantasy in a precise and exhilarating high style, Son of Sofia marks Psikou as a major new voice. –Jaie Laplante
