Ektoras Lygizos

Born in Athens in 1976, Ektoras Lygizos was until only a short time ago, a man of the theatre, directing plays by demanding authors like Samuel Beckett, Henrik Ibsen, Anton Chekhov or Alfred Jarry. In 2004 he took to Venice his first short film, Pure Youth, and this year he presented at Toronto his first full-length film, Boy eating the Bird’s food, where Lygizos seems to have filtered his familiarity with Beckett (and the most probable one with Hambre, Hamsun’s classic) while at the same time not permitting metaphysics to suffocate the references to the political, economic and social situation of present-day Greece.
