Movie Story

THE LAIR is a feature fiction film based on the homonymous short story by Nikos Kasdaglis, produced by Nova Melancholia and co-produced by the Greek Film Centre.

Athens. The last day of a female member of an illegal terrorist organization. Despina shoots, kills, wanders around the city, tries to find help, fails in every attempt, gets shot, dies in her apartment. The movie attempts a personal portrait of the city of Athens through the drifting of the main character. The Lair -a low budget production with DIY aesthetics and queer elements- is an existential road movie.
