A Greek primary teacher who starts working in a call centre after being made redundant from her teaching job, becomes interested in the lives of people she has been calling as a debt collection agent.
The proof-of-concept short film for The Astronaut's Room "The Line", directed by Lukas Agelastos and written by Doris Avgerinopoulos and Lukas Agelastos, is out now and has attracted some very positive reviews!
“Touchingly human- with a heart-rending Alexandra Aidini”- avopolis.gr
“Raw social realism” - edromos.gr
“It upholds the emotional tension with the camera confined to an office, glued to two faces- one cannot escape the gaze of supple and sensitive Alexandra Aidini” - flix.gr
“I consider it my duty to suggest it to you. It is about our country, it is about us. But at the same time it has no borders. Its message is great and universal.” M. Toskas, Belle Epoque
