Previews 28 Feb - 2 March as part of the Glasgow Film Festival 2021
Blanchett executive produces this timely, drily witty and ultimately moving portrait of a world that has succumb to a strange, all-pervasive virus.
A strain of amnesia is holding the world in its grip. Those who succumb to it permanently lose their memory. For those carrying identification and with loved ones, there is hope. But those who cannot be identified and who have no one to ‘claim’ them are given a new identity, home and itinerary through which they can record memories for a new life. Aris is one such person. Christos Nikou’s wonderful feature debut, written and directed before the COVID-19 pandemic began is a soulful rumination on who we are and what defines us. At its centre is a compelling performance by Aris Serveyalis, best known in the UK for his role in Yorgos Lanthimos’ Alps. A remarkably assured debut by Nikou, Apples is the perfect film for the times we live in.
