Director Statement

The characters in the film fall in and out of love with hitting rock bottom, themselves, and the undeniable escapism of selling 500 pens.

The city of Thessaloniki frames the story with its signature cultural charm, undelight streets and popular locations like the Thessaloniki Concert Hall and the City Bay Area.

"500 Pens" was inspired by films such as the "Before" Trilogy, "Blue Valentine" and "Good Time".
