by Bill Mousoulis

Mousoulis' feature from 2017, 118 mins, shot in Greece.

Melbourne indie filmmaker Bill Mousoulis’ foray into Greek radical music, its songs of resistance, pain, and sorrow, Songs of Revolution is a hybrid film, part documentary, part fiction, and veritably bursting at the seams. Greek musicians Antouan Parinis, Dimitris Poulikakos and Thanos Kois (amongst others) feature in the film, with actors Thodoris Arianoutsos and Marianthi Koliaki (amongst others) in fictional sequences. An eclectic film with different musical styles and different cinematic forms intermingling.
