Petros, a Widowed Cypriot Man, attends his son’s engagement party although tolerant of his son’s homosexuality he is yet to be truly accepting of him. Over Koupepia, a traditional Cypriot delicacy, he meets Eleni - a British Cypriot Transgender Woman. The two appear to have nothing in common but bond over the food of their heritage reframing Petros’ relationship to his son, queer people and the Cypriot identity. Can people be more than what we assume?


Koupepia is a Trans/Queer British Greek Cypriot short film, written by Sophia Vi, directed by emerging film director Yorgo Glynatsis and produced by Koupepia Films, House of Glynatsis Productions, 11 little films and Watermelon Films in partnership with Trans+ On Screen.
