“LOVED it. Don’t miss it.”

“The impeccable ensemble performance from each chapter creates a complete marvel of a romantic drama.”

Set in modern day Greece, Worlds Apart is comprised of three separate narratives each following a love story between a foreigner and a Greek. Each story represents a different generation falling in love during a time of socioeconomic turmoil that dominates Southern Europe overall, only to connect as a single story in the end. Almost like a triptych work of art where each painting stands alone, its true impact lies when viewed as a whole.
The location and the era in which the story takes place is influenced by the current political climate in Southern Europe and particularly the constant unemployment growth, the accelerating numbers of incoming illegal immigrants and the rise of a violent extremist sociopolitical party in Greece. The story however, surpasses the culture-specific elements by thematizing love, fear, family values and the other aspects of life relatable in a universal level, crossing cultural and age barriers, thus appealing to an international audience.
Ensemble cast includes: Christopher Papakaliatis, Oscar & Golden Globe Award winner J.K Simmons, Hellenic Film Academy Winner Minas Chatzisavvas, Andrea Osvart, Maria Kavoyianni, Niki Vakali, Tawfeek Barhom, Odysseas Papaspiliopoulos, and Matthaios Korovesis
Written & Directed by Christopher Papakaliatis
