Chypre Culture, an association co-founded in 2012 by Androula (Andri) Michael and Erotokritos Antoniadis to promote Cypriot art and culture presents the film “Family Member” by Marinos Kartikkis at the Cinéma Les 7 Parnassians on March 14, 2017.
About “Family Member”
According to a press release by Chypre Culture, the film is about two adults, Υiorgos and Sophia, who are trying hard to cope with their financial problems and the needs of their two children. Also, their grandfather helps them out with his pension since the family business, a small grocery store, does not provide them with enough income.
When suddenly the grandfather dies in his sleep, they decide to keep it a secret for as long as they can so as to continue collecting the money from his pension. But things become more complicated when officers from the social security department start looking for the grandfather.
