The Cinema Dynamo is happy to present Exotica Erotica, etc. a film by Evangelia Kranioti, director, visual artist and photographer based in Paris.

At the heart of Evangelia Kranioti’s research are the notions of desire, wandering, and return to one’s origins. Inspired by the work of the Greek writer Nikos Kavvadias, Kranioti questions the male-female relationship through the fleeting loves of sailors in ports, terrae incognitae where the magic of wandering still operates.

The documentary essay Exotica, Erotica, etc. is the culmination of a long-term project undertaken over four years, during which she followed the crews of the Greek navy worldwide and spent months in the company of the women they frequent.

Through the stories of Sandy, former Chilean prostitute and those of these souls in perpetual homelessness, Kranioti poetically depicts the romantic imaginary of the sea, its tragic heroes and its forgotten loves.

Evangelia Kranioti was born in 1979 in Athens, Greece. After studies in law and in visual and editorial design at the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris, she obtained a Diploma at Le Fresnoy Studio of Contemporary Arts. Exotica Erotica, etc. is her first feature film. It was premiered at the Berlinale in February.

Marilyn de los Puertos, a first short version of the project will be presented in a loop from 17.03.2015 to 12.04.2015, Tuesday to Sunday from 11.00 to 18.00. Except the on 24-25 March and 3 April.
