My Name Is Eftihia, a film about the life of the greatest Greek female lyricist is released in UK cinemas.

My Name is Eftihia, the 8-time Hellenic Academy-Award winning biographical drama, including Best Film, about the life and times of the Greek lyricist and songwriter Eftihia Papagiannopoulou is coming to the big screen across the UK on Friday, March 24!

The film narrates the life story of one of the most important Greek lyricists, Eftihia Papagianopoulou, whose songs rose to prominence in the 1950s and 1960s and still remain popular, and who wasn’t widely known or recognised until her death in the early 1970s.

It’s a great opportunity to gather family members and friends to experience this true story and moving film on the big screen.

A young girl, recently married, is traveling from Aidini to Greece with her mother and her two daughters. On board the ship she decides not to let life pass her by, but to live her own way. And she goes ahead! She writes endlessly wherever she can, on napkins and cigarette boxes, to bills. She smokes, she passionately falls in love, casually gambles in luxurious salons, but also in illegal basements. A teacher who becomes an actress and plays in streets and in theatres, a poet who becomes the greatest Greek folk songwriter. She collaborates with all the famous music personalities of the country, from Vassilis Tsitsanis and Apostolos Kaldaras to Manolios Ηiotis, Antonis Repanis and Manos Hadjidakis, bravely asserting herself to a cruel and typically male-dominated world.

Eftihia stands as the 5th highest grossing Greek film of all-time. The film is written by Katerina Bei, directed by Angelos Frantzis and starring Kariofilia Karabeti, Katia Goulioni, Pigmalion Dadakaridis, Thanos Tokakis and Dina Michailidou. EFTIHIA is produced by Tanweer Productions with Dionyssis Samiotis serving as Producer, alongside Costas Lambropoulos, Yiorgos Kiriakis and Natali Douka serving as Executive Producers.

Eftihia is a Tanweer Production with Co-producers: COSMOTE TV, Splendidway Universe, Viewmaster Films, and Executive Producers Viewmaster Films. With the support of EKOME.
