The Craft of Film: Dogtooth (18) + ScreenTalk with Editor Yorgos Mavropsaridis


23 February 2017
Cinema 2
One of the key films of the Greek New Wave, Dogtooth is the darkly satirical portrait of a family in which the parents keep their grown-up son and two daughters shielded from the outside world.

Confined to the family’s house and garden, they live according to a seemingly absurd system of rules and rituals that however is insidiously effective in keeping them in place – at least until there are breaches from outside and within. This all feels very strange not least because even shocking events are delivered in the most deadpan visual style and at a deceptively calm pace unobtrusively controlled by Yorgos Mavropsaridis’s editing.

We’re delighted to have editor Yorgos Mavropsaridis join us to talk after the screening, hosted by Chris Wyatt.
