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 latest feature Worlds Apart also screens at this year’s GFF.
A recent Greek classic and the Opening Night feature of the 2013 GFF returns by popular demand for a very special encore festival screening.
Two opposing perspectives are masterfully teased out in Christopher Papakaliatis’ Sliding Doors-inspired style of storytelling: One perspective from a confirmed bachelor, and the other from a couple in love.
Demetris (played by Papakaliatis himself) shares his relatively normal life with a German Shepherd dog. When his canine friend begs to be walked one night, he unwittingly stands on the precipice of a life-changing decision – something the audience knows, even if he does not. Will Demetris go out tonight and meet Christina (Marina Kalogirou), the love of his life? Or will he just stay home?
Whatever Demetris’ decision, the results are anything but black and white in this duet of contrasting tales that come with their own kind of happiness… and tragedy.
