BOUREK, Coming soon to Facets Cinematheque

July 1-7 will be the Chicago Premiere of Bourek directed by Vladan Nikolic, at the Facets Cinematheque

Set against current global issues, such as economic crises, political upheavals, and general bad news, an extravagant international cast of characters meets on the Greek island of Khronos.  There is a paranoid U.S. billionaire; a British DJ hiding from his life; a Greek woman, holding on to the crumbling remains of her family house against the pressure of banks and creditors; a Libyan refugee; a Turkish Hashish-dealer, et alia. Hiding from the end of the world, or hoping to find a better future, they all discover something or someone unforeseen that gives new meaning to their lives, helped in no small part by the food they share, especially the Mediterranean pastry Bourek. Using satire and allegory, this humanistic comedy tells the story of simple things that bring us together.

Directed by Vladan Nikolic, 2015, Greece/Cyprus/U.S.A., 90 mins.

In English, Serbian and Greek with English subtitles.
