Second Run DVD to release Yorgos Lanthimos’ haunting debut feature KINETTA on 26 January 2015


A Film by Yorgos Lanthimos

Greece, 2005

Release Date: 26 January 2015

Kinetta… a desolate Greek resort town, inhabited during the off-season by migrant workers. In this colourless setting, the film studies the cryptic activities of an inscrutable trio: a plain-clothes cop with a passion for cars, tape recorders and Russian women; a loner clerk who is a part-time photographer; and a hotel maid with aspirations to be an actress.

They barely speak, passing the time by staging outlandish re-enactments of local murders.

Their efforts are obsessive, the details exhaustive, their purpose… questionable.

This darkly comic and compellingly hypnotic film is the extraordinary debut feature of Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, Alps and the forthcoming The Lobster), one of Greek cinema’s most acclaimed new directors.


DVD Special Features:

• Presented from a new HD restoration of the film, approved by the director

• ‘In conversation’ – a new and exclusive filmed interview with director Yorgos Lanthimos filmed at London’s Tate Modern.

• Booklet featuring a new essay on the film by writer and critic Michael Ewins. • New and improved English subtitle translation.

• World premiere on DVD – released for the first time anywhere on home video.


Release Date: 26 January, 2015
