Boy on the Bridge

(To agóri sti géfyra)
Cyprus 2016. Dir: Petros Charalambous. 85 min. DCP

A country kid finds himself at the centre of a murder investigation in Cypriot filmmaker Petros Charalambous’s much-praised debut feature, co-written by novelist Eve Makis. “Cyprus 1988. Twelve-year old Socrates (superb newcomer Costantinos Farmakas) spends the hot summer days hurtling through the street of his sleepy mountain village on his bicycle, setting off home-made firecrackers and tormenting the local residents. His carefree life comes to an abrupt end when he finds out that the family of his cousin and best friend are being physically abused by their violent father Hambo. What starts as a naive attempt to teach Hambo a lesson leads Socrates to the heart of a homicide and the exposure of a dark family secret” (London Greek Film Festival). In Greek with English subtitles.
