Synopsis

Set in Egypt, Greece, Italy and the US, Anja Kirschner's piece reflects on the way psychological, historical and material realities are connected through the prism of the filmmaking progress itself.
Its main protagonists - a director and a screenwriter are in the early stages of developing a commercial feature film, but soon their own conflicting desires and the events simultaneously occurring around them, take them far beyond their initial intentions. Forced to radically reconfigure her project, the director becomes more and more drawn into conversations with the actors she has cast, which centre on the way cinema intersects with their own lives and gives expression to the realities they are confronted with.
