A BLAST will be screened tonight at the National Theatre. A BLAST is a feature film by the Greek director Syllas Tzoumerkas and it is in competition in our Competition Programme - Features.
The film tells the story of Maria who is running away on the highway. She is alone in her roaring SUV. Behind her, fire and a case full of money. In front of her, the hopeless vastness of the highway. Just a day earlier she was a caring mother, a loving wife, a responsible daughter. Today she is a fugitive, determined to sweep away everything she has ever cared for.
