Nicos Perakis, "ARTHERAPY"
A docu-fiction film by Nicos Perakis
In the heart of the historic and multicultural center of Athens, in the midst of summer, three youngsters with a passion for arts come together in the musical and visual arts scene. Ilia the front woman of the band Stiletto Scag, is searching for her place in the limelight. Alexandros, a street artist, must deliver a mural to his sponsor. And Andreas, a senior at the National Theater School Drama is trying to get by financially, while rehearsing exhaustively for his finals. Three days are enough to disrupt the "social truce", when their expectations are shattered by the multi faceted "establishment", whether it be the law or simply mainstream culture.
Most of the characters and events in the film are true.
