Screen can reveal the first trailer for Christos Passalis’ Silence 6-9, which will have its world premiere in the main competition at this year’s Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (KVIFF, July 1-9).
Passalis stars alongside Angeliki Papoulia as a man and woman who meet one evening in a half-abandoned town surrounded by antennas. In this strange, dreamlike world the two solitary souls gradually start to develop feelings for one another.
The project is produced by Greece’s Homemade Films and co-produced by ERT, Asterisk Post. Producer is Maria Drankaki and co-producers are Vicky Miha, Stelios Kammitsis, Grigoris Arvanitis. Passalis wrote the script alongside Eleni Vergeti.
Homemade Films are handling sales.
The project is Passalis’ solo feature directing debut. He co-directed Berlinale Encounters premiere The City And The City alongside Syllas Tzoumerkas, having acted in The Miracle Of The Sargasso Sea as well as Yorgos Lanthimos’ Dogtooth.
