In this impressive contemporary Greek drama, former actress Antigone returns to her troubled hometown determined to keep a low profile. But run-ins with the town’s brutish men set a startling series of events in motion...

“Standing’s title references people’s tendency to first notice things that aren’t right but then decide it’s easier to pretend they’re none of their business, something Antigone, a former actress who’s come back from Athens to her unnamed birthplace, a small-town community rife with unspoken tensions and the constant specter of macho violence, seems almost incapable of doing [….) This ambitious second feature grows more complex as the story unearths the austere and uncaring nature of contemporary Greece.”
- Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

“The heroine’s name is Antigone, but the myths at work in Standing Aside, Watching, are those of the American western, one whose heroine has more cojones than a dozen Gary Coopers. The film? A model of urgent, contemporary storytelling by Greek director Yorgos Servetas, with a sometimes spare, sometimes epic visual take on modern Greece and a story that synthesizes past and present, while creating its own drama.”
- John Anderson, Indiewire
