    Director's Statement

    People standing in line; all in order. Everyone is starving for something: products, entertainment, religion, art, money. But in the last queue they are all starving for… food. It’s the queue of personal survival. If the food ends, then disorder begins. And if one man falls, we all fall down.

    I want to capture that frame where interpretation turns into experience, constructive fiction into accidental life.

    After several award-winning short films in different festivals, Yorgos directed his first feature film in 2015, Interruption, presented at the Venice Mostra. Screened during the 57 th edition of La Semaine de la Critique, THIRD KIND is a chilling science- fiction tale about wandering ghosts of an abandoned civilisation.
