For the sixth summer running, Park Your Cinema, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC’s) series of open-air cinema projections, welcomes the public at the Great Lawn of the Stavros Niarchos Park.
This year, for the selection of films addressed to adult viewers, the SNFCC inaugurates its partnership with the Thessaloniki International Film Festival (TIFF), the country’s most prestigious film institution.
This summer, therefore, when our need to laugh is greater than ever, the TIFF presents a series of films that prove that comedy is, after all, a very serious matter, kicking off this season’s projections with the legendary Derek Zoolander, who leaves the catwalks of the 00’s behind to land with a bang at the Stavros Niarchos Park.
Derek Zoolander is the world’s most famous and vain – albeit not too bright – supermodel. He shot to fame thanks to his famous “Blue Steel” pose, and cannot imagine anyone threatening his supremacy. When newcomer Hansel beats him to the title of Model of the Year, however, Derek begins to search for new meaning in his life. This quest leads him to the maniacal fashion guru Mugatu, who promises to bring him back into the spotlight. But what Zoolander doesn’t know is that Mugatu is brainwashing him in order to compel him to assassinate the Prime Minister of Malaysia! Directed and co-written by Ben Stiller, who also plays the starring role, Zoolander is a hilarious parody of the world of fashion that is guaranteed to have you laughing out loud!
