Event description

Description

Come watch the wonderfully shlocky cult Australian classic 'Hercules Returns' (1993) with all proceeds going to 'Lgbtqi+ Refugees in Greece'.

Lgbtiq+ Refugees in Greece are a self-organised grassroots initiative giving space and a voice to LGBTQI+ refugees. They are the only organization at this moment in Athens dedicated solely to the needs of LGBTQI+ Refugees.

Film Synopsis:
Two film company executives resign from the company to start their own revival theater. They decide to re-open the theater with the same Italian sword-and-sandal epic that closed the theater down years ago. But in revenge for the two employees having quit on him, their ex-boss sends the theater a copy of Hercules -- but in Italian and without subtitles. In order to go ahead with the film screening, the two film entrepreneurs have to improvise a running English soundtrack for the film as it unspools in the projection booth. In their fractured version of Hercules, Hercules is now a nightclub performer who is snubbed by the nightclub owner's daughter Labia, because she is in love with Testiculi. And as the film unspools, the boys in the booth have to keep up the dubbing, no matter if it makes sense on the screen or not.
