USA/GRC | 1960 | dir. Jules Dassin with Melina Mercouri, Giorgos Fountas, Titos Vandis

With the background of the Aegean Sea, Ilya (Melina Mercouri), a self-employed, free-spirited prostitute who lives in the port of Piraeus in Greece, meets Homer (Jules Dassin), an American tourist and classical scholar who is enamored of all things Greek. Homer feels Ilya’s lifestyle typifies the degradation of Greek classical culture, and attempts to steer her onto the path of morality, while, at the same time, Ilya attempts to loosen Homer up, notably on Sunday, when they all go ‘to the seashore!’

The film will be screened on a 35mm print
