DIRECTOR: Athina Rachel Tsangari - GREECE

Attenberg is about Marina, a young woman living in a small coastal town who is infatuated with synth-pop band Suicide and the mammal documentaries of David Attenborough. Her other primary cultural influence is Monty Python, prompting her and her one friend Bella to adopt some Silly Walks. Despite help from her dying father, a visionary architect, and Bella, she struggles to understand the rituals of human interactions, attempting to make sense of her relationships with sex and death with the same detached manner demonstrated by her favorite naturalist. Given the oddities of human nature, will the virginal Marina ever overcome her repulsion at the idea of physical contact with the male of the species? Filled with playful set pieces, deadpan humor, and unexpected poignancy, Attenberg defies easy categorization other than as a likely candidate for a future cult classic. (97 mins.)

Filmography: The Slow Business of Going (00).

This year’s Greek submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.


Interests: Oscar Submissions, Narrative Feature.
