Film Trailer

Multiple storylines take place in a multicultural area of Athens during Orthodox Easter. The lives of four strangers, who live in the same neighborhood, change dramatically when, on Palm Sunday, the neighborhood’s postbox is blasted just for laughs. The consequences are relentless while Thalia watches everyone in the neighborhood, having lost her only chance to find happiness.

Maria Lafi studied Photography and Audiovisual Arts at Technological Educational Institute of Athens and Film Direction at Hellenic Cinema and Television School of STAVRAKOS in Athens. Now she studies Master of Arts in Video Production, Audiovisual Media and Motion Graphics at West Attica University. “Holy Boom” is her first feature film.
