Revelations

Short Film (Full Length) – 1992

Revelations is Greek-born director Athina Tsoulis's second drama about an immigrant Greek family in 1960s Auckland. As with A Bitter Song, the story centres around middle daughter Thalia (played by Fotini Yamas; Bitter Song star Alexa Tsoulis-Reay-Thalia now plays the youngest child, Eleni). Teenager Thalia yearns for her own space in a traditional house-hold where her father expects her to be dutiful, and her mother is haunted by a family secret. Thalia's discovery of this secret inspires her to take a stand. Fiona Kay (acclaimed for film Vigil) plays older sister Vasso. The half-hour drama screened on TV series Another Country.  

Are you happy now? We won't die of the plague this year.
