Two siblings, one spell, wounded landscapes and an inevitable departure.
“To Vancouver” is a short chronicle of a disappearing act in the times of the new Depression.
Vicky uses this magic spell to make coins appear and disappear. She ultimately uses it with the hope to control the fate of her beloved sibling, before he goes away.
“To Vancouver” explores the theme of loss due to poverty, unemployment and immigration through a child’s perspective. Connecting the local folklore and mythological monsters with you tube magic tricks and the current de-industrialization of Greece, this film stays faithful to a neorealist approach while looking at the world like a kid does: with curiosity, fantasy and hope.
