Leoforos Patision (Patision Avenue)
Yanni’s mum is on her way to audition for a role as Shakespeare’s Viola, when she discovers that her son has been left home alone. Through a series of phone calls, she fights to balance the most important roles of her life, whilst walking in the most controversial area of central Athens: Patision Avenue.
Leoforos Patision is my attempt to understand my mother; a creature of admirable sensitivity, torn between her female nature, stereotypes about women and her true desires. What I can now see is that she tried hard winning battles but losing others. As a filmmaker this short was my personal Everest; a demanding, single long-take-shot in central Athens.
