The feature length directorial debut of Vardis Marinakis, Black Field is being compared to "The crying game". Shot on a Red camera, they are also throwing around the name Terrence Malick for a comparison in the photography. Release is tentatively set for November, so I'm guessing it will premier at the Thessaloniki International Film Festival. The promo reel is quite stunning so check it out.

1654, Ottoman Empire, Greece. A Turkish Warrior arrives heavily wounded in a remote christian female monastery and is nursed by Anthi, a young Greek nun who has taken the oath of silence. They fall in love without realising it. Anthi doesnt dare to reveal to the Turkish Warrior her dark secret. She is a boy. A cross gender love story. "The crying game" set in the Balkans of 17th century. A visual film about two people that fall in a dead end love.
