Director Statement

This allegoric ANTI-FABLE provoked me to return to the short narrative format. It is an altered viewpoint on Athens today, conveyed through the imagery of sci-fi and noir films.

In my Athens, confusion and chaos seem to prevail and we are told all kinds of fables. Fables usually end with a soothing “happily ever after” – but where is the truth? This fable is the opposite of a quieting tale; it is an ANTI-fable.
