Film Website



Yesterday, Maria was a caring mother and a loving wife. Now she’s in her SUV fleeing at top speed on the motorway, with a fire and a case full of banknotes behind her and a desolate expanse of asphalt in front of her. Maria is at war, against herself, but also her country and her family who have betrayed her dreams. Everything that has gone before should now end with a big bang. A Blast is a filmic explosion from Greece: a woman and a country on the edge of a nervous breakdown.


Syllas Tzoumerkas (*1978) studied theatre, direction and acting in Athens, Utrecht and New York. After Homeland (2010) A Blast is his second feature film.
