My Name is Eftyhia

Greece, 2019, 123 min, LA Premiere, Available for streaming in North America Only

Inspired by the life of the most prolific Greek female poet and lyricist, Eftihia Papagiannopoulou; an extraordinary woman and artist who has created a massive volume of timeless and popular songs. She traveled from Smyrna to Greece. She lived every day of her life as if it were her last. She wrote incessantly on any surface she could find.
Her name means Happiness but destiny made sure she knew very little of it. She challenged death every day of her life, hoping to ward off its cold, ruthless grip.
