OPENING NIGHT GALA
Roza of Smyrna
Always a sell-out event, this year’s Opening Night Gala will once again deliver a big night for all to enjoy.
In George Kordellas’ remarkable debut feature ROZA OF SMYRNA, Dimitris is a collector from a renowned Athenian museum who uncovers a story of star-crossed lovers while searching for artefacts in the lost city of Smyrna. During a research trip in the Turkish city of Izmir, Dimitris stumbles upon three historic curiosities buried in the depths of a small antique shop: an old photograph, a wedding dress stained with blood, and a letter. His search to uncover the truth behind these items leads him to the enigmatic Roza, matriarch of a once powerful family who has been holding the weight of the past on her shoulders for decades.
