Apples (Closing film) by Christos Nikou

Amidst a worldwide pandemic that causes sudden amnesia, middle-aged Aris finds himself enrolled in a recovery program designed to help unclaimed patients build new identities.

His treatment: performing daily tasks prescribed by his doctors on cassette tape, and capturing these new memories with a Polaroid camera.

Greek writer-director Christos Nikou’s debut feature has been submitted as the official Greek entry for “Best International Feature Film” at the 2021 Academy Awards (Oscars).

Christos Nikou

was born in Athens in 1984.

His short film “KM” participated in over 40 international film festivals, including Rotterdam, Stockholm, Palm Springs, Sydney, Tallinn Black Nights and Interfilm Berlin, and won the Best Short Film Prize at the Motovun Film Festival of Croatia.

For the past ten years, he has worked as an assistant director on numerous Greek and international film and television productions, such as “Dogtooth” (Yorgos Lanthimos), “Before Midnight” (Richard Linklater), “4 Black Suits“, “Nobody“, “Christmas Tango“, “A Greek Type of Problem“, “7 Kinds of Wrath“ and “Approach“.
