About:
An intimate portrait of acclaimed actress Olympia Dukakis.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Follow Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis behind the scenes in this affectionate profile of a stalwart New Yorker and beloved stage and screen treasure. A woman ahead of her time, Olympia has always defied expectations, eluding the limits of her heritage and gender to challenge standards and shatter precedent. Moving between past and present, filmmaker Harry Mavromichalis lovingly captures the actress as she travels back to Greece, shares self-deprecating stories, and reflects on her extraordinary career.
