Cyprus, 2019, 18 min, West Coast Premiere
Tony Moussoulides, once a famous fashion photographer in Swinging Sixties London, and now 85, dreams of creating a Hollywood-style movie based on his career. With the help of two female filmmakers, Tony reenacts—and directs—scenes from his life, including a photoshoot with Andy Warhol and a meeting with John Huston. Tensions mount as Tony’s artistic vision for the film clashes with that of its directors, and a seemingly normal biopic becomes a study of the human desire to be remembered.
