Zizotek is a subtly captivating and original drama by Greek director Vardis Marinakis, shapeshifting from oddball family drama to wilderness thriller to a strange and dreamlike allegory. After 9-year-old Jason is abandoned by his mother at a folk festival, he takes refuge in a cabin in the middle of the forest belonging to a mute loner named Minas. Although at first the man won’t take him in, they eventually form a strange kind of surrogate family. But Minas is involved in some shady dealings with menacing locals and they end up on the road to an uncertain future.

Screening followed by Nimic, the mindbending new short by Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite, Dogtooth).
