Principal photography has begun in Athens on VOICES IN DEEP,

WEST OF SUNSHINE TEAM MOVE FROM AUSTRALIA TO GREECE

TO SHOOT NEXT FEATURE

VOICES IN DEEP

(Director Jason Raftopoulos, cast Hannah Sims, Christos Karavevas, Angeliki Papoulia)

Principal photography has begun in Athens on VOICES IN DEEP, the second feature film from Australian writer/director Jason Raftopoulos, whose previous film West Of Sunshine premiered at Venice Film Festival 2017.  The Melbourne-set drama went onto receive three Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Award nominations, including Best Indie Film. 

A tragedy at sea connects the lives of Bobby (Hannah Sims), an Australian humanitarian and two orphaned refugees, Tarek and Zaeed, as they fight for survival in present day Athens. Bobby compulsively exposes herself to strangers to dull the tragic memories at sea, but a chance encounter with Gloria (Angeliki Papoulia), leads them on an adventure together. Tarek (Michael Hilane) and Zaeed (Christos Karavevas) fend for themselves on the streets. Tarek sells his body for food and shelter to provide for his increasingly vulnerable younger brother. Desperate to pull them out of their situation, Zaeed takes matters into his own hands, setting off a chain of devasting events.

Taking on the lead of Bobby, is Australian newcomer Hannah Sims. Supporting cast include Greek actress Angeliki Papoulia (The Lobster) as Gloria and newcomers Christos Karavevas and Michael Hilane as Zaeed and Tarek.

‘For centuries, Athens has been a place where the lives of millions have intersected; it’s a city that has been both conqueror and conquered, a place of great enlightenment and great oppression, a melting pot of religions ideas and sexual ambiguity. It is for these reasons that I chose Athens as the setting to explore ideas of time, desperation, identity and freedom.’

  • Jason Raftopoulos, Writer Director

The film is produced by Alexandros Ouzas and Tessa Mansfield-Hung (West Of Sunshine) for Exile Entertainment, with Raftopoulos producing through Small Village Films. Arcadia are the Greek production company, with George Linardakis serving as producer.

VOICES IN DEEP is supported through the Producer Offset and the Greek funding body EKOME, with development funds from Screen Australia and Film Victoria. Exile Entertainment will distribute the film in Australia and New Zealand, with Arclight handling the rest of the world.
