Stathoulopoulos is a Greek-Colombian director, who gained international attention in 2007 with PVC-1, an 84’ continuous take of a woman held hostage and turned into a human bomb.
The film had premiered as an official selection for the Directors' Fortnight at Cannes and won a very prestigious prize, the Directors’ Award at the International Thessaloniki Film Festival.
The success of that film has turned Meteora, a Greek-German co-production, into a much anticipated release for 2012.
The Berlinale will be held on February 9-19 and will also feature another Greek film, Angelos Abazoglou’s docufiction Mustafa’s Sweet Dreams, in competition at the Generation 14+ section for young filmmakers.
