Savor Cinema Fort Lauderdale - Sunday, 10/15/23 2:00pm

Event Details:

”George” is a documentary short film about George Manias, who has operated a shoe shine shop for 76 years, ever since escaping the Nazi occupation of Crete at 14 years old. Today, at 91, the loss of his sister Angela haunts him as he struggles to decide whether to retire, and whether to visit Crete again without Angela by his side. “George” is more than a documentation of George’s life. It’s a fairy tale about a man who exists apart from the modern world, toiling ceaselessly, right under our noses. George’s quiet consistency suggests a great power within him, despite his humble occupation and simple approach to life. It’s the power of things that last.
