As manager of a luxury hotel, Jonny is accustomed to a world of privilege. His ex wife and three children rely on him for financial support.

His sudden termination, after the sale of the hotel chain and a reshuffle of executive positions, leaves him emotionally adrift. He still dresses daily in suit and tie, but aside from efforts to find new employment, his waking hours are consumed by online gambling.

However, his life slowly changes from the moment his girlfriend coaxes him outside into the sunlight and his subsequent interaction with local people on the island.

Only two more days remain of the 15th San Francisco Greek Film Festival. While closing night is already sold out, tickets are still available for Friday 19 October 2018.

Back To Burgundy directed by Cédric Klapisch (France) 2017 is about the pleasures and challenges of winemaking in France.

The complicated story is told by the oldest son returning to the childhood home he fled ten years earlier to escape his demanding father and experience the world.

Reunited with his sister and brother, the three maneuver to make a go of what was left to them by their parents.

They face difficult decisions both in their personal lives and also in the running of the family enterprise they hope to preserve as best they can.

The film opens 23 March 2018 at the Village East Cinema, New York; Smith Rafael Film Center, San Rafael; Summerfield Cinemas, Santa Rosa; and Vogue Theatre, San Francisco.
