About the Director:
Born and raised in Athens, Christopher Papakaliatis is an instantly recognisable household name and much-admired star in Greece. Having appeared on TV since high school, he has starred, directed and written numerous top-rated and acclaimed television drama series. His debut feature What if… opened GFF 2013.

“As a director [Christopher Papakaliatis] has the gift to present a different Greece, a Greece larger-than-life, like a cinemascope dream.” Cinepivates

After smashing Greek box office records with his spirited debut film, What if…, Christopher Papakaliatis returns to tackle the three pillars of writing, directing and acting with this deeply tender tale of cross-continental love. 

Papakaliatis consolidates his canny ability to interweave narratives by presenting a trio of tonally incongruent stories, all set in modern Greece and all involving romance between a Greek and a foreigner. With an abundance of affection, humour and gravitas, each story climbs its climactic mountain before shifting to the next. Yet, somehow, all three come together at the end in a way we never anticipate.

Despite their rocky roads to love and the complications of today, Worlds Apart serves as a poetic reminder that truth, beauty and humanity exist even in our darkest hours.

Winner of the Hellenic Film Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor (the late Minas Hatzisavvas) and starring the winner of the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, 2015).
