Angeliki Papoulia in A Blast

Maria (Angeliki Papoulia, Dogtooth)started her adult life with the best of intentions.  But ten years after, no matter where she looks, her world is cracking.  Greece’s ongoing financial crisis has forced people everywhere to reevaluate their expectations of the world, and she’s having none of that.  Unwilling to reconcile with a life of unreturned care, lost dignity and a broken-down desire to live, Maria wants out, attacking her past, the people she loves, her country and the perception of her sex in a relentless battle to find truth, both in her and around her.

Presented in Greek with English subtitles, A Blast will also be available digitally on IndiePix Unlimited, the signature streaming subscription service of IndiePix Films.
