Christos Godas presents his debut film, a documentary on the Monastery of St. John the Theologian in Patmos, “the island of Revelations” in the Dodecanese.
A seasoned traveler, Godas experiences all the island has to offer, from the social scene at local haunts to the spirituality of the Monastery of St. John the Theologian and the Holy Cave. But it is his visit to the monastery’s library and museum that opens a revelation on the very foundation of the modern world and its cracks..
Travel experts will join the post-screening discussion.

Two young people struggling through their failing relationship suddenly realize that they are trapped.
Responding to audience demand, the NYCGFF presents this sensitive drama once more this year and again dedicates it to the memory of its riveting young star, Alexis Mouyiaris, who died suddenly as he was nearing completion of this, his first film.
Five Greek Jews give eloquent accounts of how they were hidden and saved by fellow Greeks during the German occupation. With its focus primarily on children and how they contended with a brutal reality that they could not have fully understood, this enthralling documentary reveals the life-long effects of early traumas and offers psycgological insights into the experience of survival.
