The Greek Cinema Club is organising screenings of the documentary Arm Wrestler at Ciné Utopia in Luxembourg-Limpertsberg on Tuesday 28 May at 19:00 and on Wednesday 29 May 2024 at 21:00.

Arm Wrestler (Heiropalaistis, Greece, 2022, 78 min, colour, 16+) by Yorgos Goussis will be screened in original Greek version with English subtitles.

Summary: An arm wrestler who lives in a remote Greek village, tired of the small community mentality, decides to return to Athens. In this journey of adulthood, he will face the most difficult opponent, himself, in an arm wrestling fight.

A poetic character-study of the director's brother Panos, a 30-year-old cafe-owner, aspiring actor and occasional clown/magician for whom arm wrestling is essentially a time-consuming side line.

Yorgos Goussis, born in Athens in 1986, is an award-winning comic book artist and film director. He has penned several bestselling graphic novels. In 2019, he made his directorial debut with the short documentary The Arm Wrestler, which won the Greek Film Academy's Best Greek Short Documentary award in 2020. His feature film Magnetic Fields (2021) and the longer documentary Arm Wrestler (2022) were acclaimed by critics and audiences alike.

Tickets cost €6 for club members and €12 for non-members and are available for purchase on-site (cash only) or via LuxembourgTicket.
