Greek film fest comes to Woodruff Arts Center this weekend


Attempting to establish a beachhead for Greek film in the U.S. starting in 2007, the New York City Greek Film Festival comes to Atlanta this weekend for a "Best of ..." program of five films.

Opening the two days of screenings at the Woodruff Arts Center's Rich Theatre at 6 p.m. Saturday is Alexandra Anthony's documentary "Lost in the Bewilderness." It's a story about a boy's reconnection with his family and Greek roots after he was kidnapped and taken out of the country at age 5, then found and returned more than a decade later.

All screenings, $12. 1280 Peachtree St. N.E., Atlanta. 404-733-5000, www.woodruffcenter.org. Film capsules: nycgreekfilmfestival.com (click "films," then "special events"). HOWARD POUSNER
