Deep Red Sky, 1997

Loula Anagnostaki

Meet Sofia Apostolou; born in an urban family, once a French teacher working in the public sector. Sofia has studied philology and is a speaker of English and Russian. She is the widow of a handsome communist and was fired from her job as a result of her alcohol addiction. She lives across the Korydallos Prison Complex, where her somewhat ugly and “slow” son is now imprisoned. This is a monologue filled with the powerful thoughts of a strong woman about life, hope and dreams that were shattered along with her principles and ideologies. It is a monologue of a mother who saw her child and herself getting involved with suspicious transactions that involved the illegal trafficking of women coming from former communist countries.
