Greek cinema features some of the wildest stories, characters, and scenes you’ll ever see on the big screen. This weekend’s Cleveland Hellenic Film Festival gives viewers a chance to check out six contemporary comedies and dramas from the country that gave us Yanni. Topping the list is Loafing and Camouflage -- Sirens in the Aegean, a satire about soldiers stationed on a small island. The beauty contestants who become stranded there add to the frothy fun. Also intriguing: Edge of Night, an award-winning coming-of-age story about two kids and their journey across modern-day Greece. Films about reluctant criminals, inspiring teachers, and a crazy, mixed-up couple are included in the mix.
May 18-19, 7 p.m.; Sun., May 20, 3 p.m.
