Movies That Changed Babis Makridis

There’s something about Greek Directors – a disturbed sense of humor, robotic characters, an unwillingness to move the camera. You’ve probably never heard of Babis Makridis or his new film Pity, but you might have heard about Dogtooth or Killing of a Sacred Deer. The commonality is writer Efthymis Filippou, who probably deserves the most credit for Greece’s modern cinematic identity. Pity, the collaboration of Filippou and his buddy Babis, premiered at Sundance 2018 and we got to sit down with Babis to hear about the films that inspired him to become a filmmaker.
