Worlds Apart

Ένας Άλλος Κόσμος

Sunday April 2nd at 6 pm
Closing Night Reception at the Rialto Theatre

Director: Christopher Papakaliatis
Starring J.K. Simmons, Christopher Papakaliatis and Andrea Osvárt

A tender tale of cross-continental love set in modern day Greece, Worlds Apart is 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 Europe.

Don't miss out on the MGFF Closing Night Reception

$40 - Includes a mézé buffet, 2 glasses of wine and admission to the exclusive Canadian premiere of Worlds Apart.

With an abundance of affection, humour and gravitas, each story climbs its climactic mountain before shifting to the next.  Almost like a triptych work of art where each painting stands alone, yet its true impact lies when viewed as a whole. Despite their rocky roads to love and the complications of today, Worlds Apart serves as a poetic reminder that truth, beauty and humanity exist even in our darkest hours.

Winner of the Hellenic Film Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor (the late Minas Hatzisavvas) and starring the winner of the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, 2015).

As a director [Christopher Papakaliatis] has the gift to present a different Greece, a Greece larger-than-life, like a cinemascope dream.” -Cinepivates
