NORWAY2014

Norway takes place in 1984. Zano arrives in the city for the first time. He is light-sensitive, a vampire and a great dancer. He gets burnt, scattered, spending himself in a part of Athens that you won’t find on any map. The only thing he longs for is a ‘warm girl’. At Disco Zardoz, a dive bar and a den for folks of ill-repute, he will meet the prostitute Alice and the Norwegian dealer Peter. With them he will take on a dubious job, which will lead them to Mount Parnitha, to the depths of the Earth, to Methuselah’s kingdom.

Norway wears shiny shoes, dances among colorful scoundrels and bites only when she wishes to.

A Horsefly Productions film in co-production with Marni Films and  Faliro House Productions, ΝΕΡΙΤ, Logline, Deepgreensea, Tugo Tugo, 2|35, Kostas Varimpompiotis.
