Directed by Yannis Veslemes

Greece 2014 73 mins.

Exuding the irreproachable cool of the new school of Greek filmmakers, Yannis Veslemes’ retro vampire flick depicts the afterlife of Zano, an undead denizen of 1980s Athens, Greece. Dressed to the nines in outdated lounge lizard attire, Zano slinks through the bars and alleys of the Greek metropolis looking for the love of a “warm” girl. All the while, he must keep in constant motion, dancing to sullen club beats, to keep his heart from stopping. “The bloodsucking creatures have always been an emblem of societal parasitism – and in this stylised steampunk creation, Zano the vampire lives a life of excessive hedonism. Veslemes’s disco-beat debut is thinly-veiled critique of those who have carelessly played with the country’s future.”—Peter Yeung, Dazed.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
