Stardust Art Film

How do you find inspiration? Where does it come from and where does it end? Stardust is a short, philosophical film that wants to imitate the moment of inspiration, without end, without beginning. An actress is giving an interview for the promotion of a movie that is going to be released in movie theatres. Her answers are converted into an inner - existential search through cinema. How have memories been imprinted on humanity? In every decade, technology has created through cinema the image that our collective memory has of each era. Stardust is a cassette-diary on an interstellar journey of some people who in one corner of the universe realized they existed.

Director Statement

Spyros Maltezos directs his short film, with only one character. Influenced by neorealism, the Nouvelle Vague movement and pop art, he wants to create memories and a sense of nostalgia for something we have not experienced. The main features of the film are the improvisation, the natural lighting, the continuous flow of speech, the dialectical editing and the absolute control of the material by the "dialogue" of actor and director, managing to build an atmospheric emotional deconstruction.
