Synopsis

Makis explores different ways of death, struggling to achieve the most ideal result.  

The film is no longer available on the site, due to "terrestrial festivals" requirements, but you can always watch the trailer and read what the viewers had to say about it.

Director's statement

“5 Ways 2 Die” is a sociopolitical allegory about a country’s governmental system based on fake appearances (wearing masks). Makis, our anti-hero, is looking for a way to end his misery in a household based on lies and pretentious appearances. Corruption is inevitable when the rules and laws do nothing to prevent it. In such cases the lines distinguishing the sinner from the victim are blurred- if not inexistent.
