Olympia Festivals will be streaming the classic Greek film “The Flea” (1990), directed back then by Dimitris Spyrou. The streaming copy will be subtitled in English, so all international friends are invited to join (at 9 AM EET and again at 4 PM EET)
“Flea” is the name of a handwritten newspaper published and edited by a 12-year-old student, Ilias Silaidis, in an isolated mountain village in Olympia. However, The Flea is also Ilias himself. Since he is so closely identified with his newspaper no one calls him by his name any more. The film won international awards (among them the CIFEJ Award at the Berlinale) and was the official Greek proposal for the Felix Best Young Film Award. The streaming copy will be subtitled in English, so we invite all our international friend to join us (at 9 AM EET and again at 4 PM EET)
