It’s the last day of a family’s vacation. What could go wrong?
First Swim premiered at the latest Athens International Film Festival.
“The film … criticizes the limited vision of a medium/high-class family. This happens, either consciously or sometimes unconsciously … The film aims to highlight the worries and the ‘entrapment’ of the people within their micro-environment. The parents cannot see anything beyond their own family. Contrarily, only the “pure” eyes of a little girl can see the dead boy, although nobody believes her.” (A. Kostopoulos)
Director and editor for cinema and TV, Alexandros Kostopoulos was born in 1984 in Athens. He studied Filmmaking at the “Hellenic Cinema & TV School Stavrakos” in Athens. He is a member of the Greek Directors and Scriptwriters Guild, and ASIFA Hellas (Greek Animation Association).
