The Embassy of Greece in Ireland, with the support of Drama International Short Film Festival, presents online the short film “Creatures of the night” (2021) written and directed by Memi Koupa. A creature of the night wanders around the streets of Athens, protecting the vulnerable. Is it an urban myth or does it really exist? During one night, the characters of the movie that will intersect with him will approach each other and for the first time in a while will fall asleep. Memi Koupa is a director and screenwriter with many years of experience in the production of commercials, experimental and fiction short films as well as music videos and short documentaries. The film (15min) is in Greek with English subtitles and is recommended PG.
This event is part of the European Culture Trail – a EUNIC Ireland (European Union National Institutes for Culture) initiative for Culture Night in cooperation with the European Commission Representation in Ireland.
Whether you plan to come to town this year or enjoy Culture Night from home, immerse yourself in the diversity of European languages and cultures on the European Culture Trail, where delights from different European countries await you.
