The Case of Mary Ford by award winning director Ben Mole, starring Branko Tomovic (“Entity”), Yannis Stankoglou (“Hostage”) and Dimitra Hatoupi (“The Third Night”) with newcomer Tamar Karabetyan, has just been completed and is starting the international festival circuit now.

It’s adapted from the award winning short story by John Mole and tells the story of the Greek legend of the Vrykolakas, a vampire from the sea.

New York City, 1913. Recent Greek immigrant Mary Ford is accused of killing her lover. Mary claims the real murderer is her husband. But her husband… is already dead. Maria’s defense relies on the story of how she came to America. Her tale begins five thousand miles away in her birthplace in the old world, a village on the shores of the Black Sea in Greek Asia Minor. Here, a web of jealousy, intrigue, mystery, deceit, murder and finally escape leads us to a dramatic climax, in which love endures beyond the grave.

Here’s the official website and a batch of stills.
