Dead Zone

Daphne (not in your eyes)

experimental, 03'48, 2011 (Greece / France)

The sounds of Athens. A foreign reporter struggling to produce her story in the middle of the riots.
The empty streets of Paris. A house. A bedroom, a kitchen. Two worlds brought into one. 
A greek girl, keeping up to her morning habits, while things back home explode. A mysterious connection between her actions and the reporter’s voice. As if she could hear it all. As if she could feel the teargas in her own eyes. As if she truly was there.

Nicosia, Cyprus. A city split in half for the past 38 years. On one hand, the turkish side. On the other, the greek. In the middle, the military dead zone. A land where time seems to have stopped. A young woman is mystically drawn by the sound of prayers coming from the other side. But as far as she looks, her eyes cannot go beyond the barricades.

This project can also be screened as a video art installation, with two separate screens facing eachother.

Intrusion

experimental, 03'58, 2013 (France)

This film is a dialog between a man and a woman. It is about the fear of being intruded upon by someone, be it in the body, or the mind. Fear of letting someone nest into your heart. Fear of the consequences that may follow.
