“Wasted Youth” is the opening film in the 40th edition of International Film Festival Rotterdam, and also a candidate for this year’s Tiger Award. Co-directed by Argyris Papadimitropoulos and Jan Vogel, “Wasted Youth” was shot with a small crew and a low budget during the summer of 2010 in Athens. This is the first Greek film to be produced entirely after the financial crisis broke out. The story is inspired by true events, even though it remains clearly fictitious.
