KRISTOS, THE LAST CHILD
France, Greece, Italy 2022 – Director: Giulia Amati – Original language: Greek – Subtitles: English, French, Italian
10 year-old Kristos is the youngest of 30 inhabitants on the Greek island of Arki. As the only primary school child, he is at a crossroads: Should he carry on his studies at a boarding school or become a shepherd like his brothers? His teacher campaigns for him to continue his education. The film takes on Kristos’ perspective and plunges into his inner world. A moving insight that is visually radiant. Maren Willkomm
