    Director's Statement

    On 2nd of June 2017, 1680 refugees were evacuated from an old abandoned airport in Athens. After one month we were the only ones who got permission to enter this airport and what we encountered was something unique. All of the refugee's belongings were still left behind; it was like a civilization has disappeared from one moment to another. So we decided to make a sci fi that three archeologists come back from the future to find out what has happened... Shot with old soviet anamorphic lenses (Stalker by Andrei Tarkovsky) and inspired by La Jette of Chris Marker and Close Encounters from Steven Spielberg, this is a science fiction film with the special occasion that all settings and props are real.

    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.
