"The Selfish Giant" by Clio Barnard

Σινεμά Χανιά | Ο εγωιστής γίγαντας | Clio Barnard | ΚΕΠΠΕΔΗΧ - ΚΑΜ | Δημοτικός Κινηματογράφος ΚΗΠΟΣ | Φωτογραφία"The Selfish Giant" is a modern story and the main characters are 13-year-old Arbor and his best friend Swifty. When they are expelled from school, and while they live as strangers in their own neighborhood, the two boys meet Kitten, a local scavenger. In an effort to make some money, but also find a purpose in life, they start working for him collecting scrap metal and cables, using a horse and a cart. Swift has a natural talent for horses, while Arbor tries to imitate Kitten - in order to impress him and make more money. However, Kitten seems to have a soft spot for Swifty, and Arbor goes unnoticed. The friendship between the two boys is put to a test, as Arbor becomes more and more greedy. The tension culminates leading to the tragic event, which will transform them.

A humane social film, which was greeted warmly at the Directors Fortnight at the 66th Cannes International Film Festival, where it was screened. Clio Bernard takes us to today's Britain and tells the tender story of two little boys, in a modern adaptation of the famous Oscar Wilde fairy tale.
