Synopsis

Aris and Anna meet one evening in a half-abandoned town surrounded by antennas which emit strange sounds and enable the transmission of human voices. In this bizarre, dreamlike world, where things don’t seem quite right – including people’s behaviour – these two solitary souls gradually start to develop feelings for one another… Silence 6-9 is the directorial debut of actor and screenwriter Christos Passalis, who also takes on the male lead; his Aris is perfectly attuned to Anna, played by Angeliki Papoulia. This melancholic love story with its mesmeric atmosphere and striking visuals is proof that Greek cinema has lost nothing of its originality.
