Paola Team Documentaries and red n’ noir are organizing at KET screenings of the documentary The Oleanders (2021).
The film follows Betty Vakalidou, Eva Koumarianou and Paola Revenioti, three trans women who have known each other for more than forty years, during a night walk in Athens. Betty, Eva and Paola revisit the streets where they started as sex workers at a young age, the places where they enjoyed life, loved and were loved back and where they struggled, lived and resisted.
