YOUNG APHRODITES presents a world of primitive love and lust, erotic passions, and innocent physical longing as two adolescents experience sensual awakening in a savagely nomadic world. Director NIKOS KOUNDOUROS, winner of the Best Director award at the BERLIN FILM FESTIVAL, filmed among the old ruins and landscapes of Greece and used authentic shepherds, peasants, and popular dancers to recreate the mood and atmosphere of a time long ago. Both exotic and sensual, this magnificently photographed film is a poetic ode to the beginning of adulthood and the loss of innocence.
