On the 27th of March we had the pleasure to host the private screening of COUNTERPART ̶ ADRIAN SITARU's first English language short film.
The screening was followed by a Q&A with actors Sarah Barker and Tom Holloway, moderated by poet Siddhartha Bose
An original script, directed by Adrian Sitaru, winner of over 80 international awards among which 2 BAFTAs, one Golden Bear nomination at the Berlin Film Festival and winner of Best Director at Locarno Film Festival.
COUNTERPART is the story of 29-year old real-estate agent Alex who lives with his 20-year old girlfriend Lili in a new building fitted with all the mod-cons, just around the corner from the council estates they grew up in. The two spend most of their time together working out and sunbathing. But someone is watching them from across the street and the day they meet is the day their lives begin to change.
The film was released at Clermont Ferrand International Short Film Festival 2014, securing distribution with Shorts International. It is currently in its festival circuit, accepted in the competition at Vilnius International Film Festival (20th March to 3rd April 2014) and BeFilm New York (22nd-26th of April 2014).
