The film had an additional screening in Locarno after previous sold-out.
Stergios Paschos has already caught the attention of the top film experts, as he has seven short films to his filmography and major awards at several festivals.
“AFTERLOV”, a funny, poignant and scathing post-love story of two people who refuse to grow up, shows a couple and its desperate attempt to communicate. Blocked and pent, hugging words that are not enough to express their unease, surrounded by memories and unable to explain what is happening to them, the two heroes begin an innocent walk in the countryside to realize that they are lost in an unexplored forest.
