By Loulou Chryssides

On Sunday, March 8th, the Hellenic Film Society USA will be screening the award-winning Greek film, Pause, as part of the Museum of the Moving Image’s ‘Always on Sunday’ monthly Greek film series.

Pause, which is directed, written, and produced by women tells the story of Elpida who feels trapped in a loveless marriage. Upon meeting a young painter, her life begins to change and the distinction between her reality and her fantasies becomes unclear. The film was directed by Tonia Mishali, and stars Stella Fyrogeni, Andreas Vasileiou, and Andrey Philipenko. 

Pause was named as one of Rotten Tomatoes’ ‘20 Most Daring Films of 2019‘, in addition to receiving the top prize at the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival

The special screening event will be held on International Women’s Day by the Hellenic Film Society USA, in association with New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT). For additional information on the event, or to purchase tickets, you may visit the Hellenic Film Society’s official website
