Dir.: Phedon Papamichel, 93 min.
The latest directorial effort from celebrated cinematographer and director of photography Phedon Papamichel (“Sideways,” “Walk the Line,” “W.”) takes him back to his native country to show the story of two teenage stepsiblings, a guarded, sarcastic young photographer and his dour but newly sexually empowered stepsister. Stuck in rural Greece after a car wreck, they have to rely on a drunken American expat drifter (played by Nick Nolte) as a guide as they traverse the ancient landscape to return to civilization. Little Rock plays home to the world premiere of “Arcadia Lost” and, as such, the little information about the film is closely guarded. But doesn’t that pique your curiosity even more? It certainly does for us. Director Papamichel and others will be on hand during the festival.
The only screening of “Arcadia Lost” is at 8 p.m. in Riverdale screen #2.
