A Family Affair, an intimate portrait of the famous Xylouris Family and their sacred bonds with the musical tradition of Crete, will premiere in Melbourne and Sydney next Sunday, 1 March at Palace Cinemas.
Directed by Angeliki Aristomenopoulou, the documentary follows three generations of the Xylouris Family, as they uphold the vibrant tradition of Cretan music. From the legendary Antonis Xylouris – widely known as Psarantonis – to his son, the famous lute player and singer George Xylouris and his three children Nikos, Antonis and Apollonia, the film follows Greece’s most famous musical clan from Crete to Australia, exploring the electrifying power of their music and the sacred ties that hold the family together.
The screening will be followed by Cretan nibbles from Philhellene, as well as wine and beer.
