A New Form of Parenting is Introduced in Exclusive Clip for Tribeca Premiere ‘Son of Sofia’

Written by on April 17, 2017 


After debuting The Eternal Return of Antonis Paraskevas a few years back at the Berlin Film Festival, Elina Psykou is back with their follow-up. Premiering in International Narrative Competition at the Tribeca Film Festival this week, Son of Sofia follows a son coping with the strange parenting styles of his new stepfather.

Ahead of the premiere, we’re pleased to debut an exclusive clip from the film, which features a bit of Greek history being incorporated into a moment of teaching. Check out our exclusive clip below, along with the trailer and poster, for the film starring Viktor Khomut, Valery Tcheplanowa, Thanasis Papageorgiou, Artemis Havalits, Christos Stergioglou, and Iro Maltezou.

Two years after his father’s death, Misha’s mother has created a new life in a new country. After migrating from Russia to Greece she has found a husband for herself, whose obnoxious attempts at disciplining her son are less than welcome. Moving to Athens means Misha’s life is being uprooted and his identity reformulated. This deeply personal story is enveloped in fairy tales, set in the peculiar cultural circumstance of the summer of 2004, as the Summer Olympics pervade all casual conversations and the ever-popular winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest plays in the background. What is public and communal invades the private in the form of sports, music and television. A child’s imagination transforms difficult situations into the dark side of fairy tales.


Son of Sofia premieres on Friday, April 21 at Tribeca Film Festival. See more details here.
