  MOVIE POSTER GREECE, 16min, Canada, Drama
Directed by Sarah Deakins

On a rainy afternoon in a British nursing home, a woman struggles to make a last connection with her seemingly catatonic mother.

"A tribute to the complicated relationships between parents and children with moving dialogue and expressions...A deeply personal journey with beautiful cinematography."
- Best Shorts Competition

"...Catch director/actor/writer Sarah Deakins' Greece when you can. Beautifully executed short making festival rounds."
- David Spaner film critic

Director's Statement:

Through the years I have always been moved by relationships on film between a parent and their child as a grownup. So much history and weight is carried in a simple expression between these two complicated human beings. "Greece" is a memory piece that takes place somewhat out of time, and though completely fictional, is deeply personal for me. It was the perfect piece to take on as a project I could follow right through from conception to the final credits.

I had been independently producing "Greece" and had already started to shoot the beach footage in California, but the film really came to fruition after a conversation in Vancouver with Brightlight Pictures, Shawn Williamson. Shawn, Arielle Boisvert , and Jonathan Shore, literally swooped in and made this film happen in a way I never would have been able to without them. Having an established production company behind a short film is a gift and a bit of a fairy tale situation. With their connections, we were able to get Jon Joffin, the Emmy nominated DOP, on board and that was just the beginning. "Greece" is now beginning the festival circuit and I am so looking forward to sharing it with the world.
