SMUGGLING HENDRIX shown in today's In Focus

A film by Greek director Marios Piperides was shown today in National Theatre as part of the In Focus programme.

Yiannis, a fading musician, is planning to leave crisis-riddled Cyprus for a better life abroad. His plans are put on hold when his dog Jimi runs away and crosses the UN buffer zone that divides the “Greek” from the “Turkish” side of the island. Since animal exchange between the two “sides” is prohibited, Yiannis reluctantly joins forces with Hasan, a Turkish settler, and a cast of unexpected characters to smuggle his best friend back home.
