Two girls see something they think they shouldn’t in a working-class neighborhood in Athens. Automatic, shot in flowing long takes, tracks this paranoia with expert precision, creating a fascinating commentary on the ways one can misinterpret their surroundings. We talk to director Emma Doxiadi about the style of the film, creating room for interpretation, the influence of Michael Haneke, and the double standards of gentrification.

Festivals include:

– 57th New York Film Festival – Film at Lincoln Center
– Austin Film Festival (2019)
– Maryland Film Festival (2020)
