A wave crashes on the decadent shipyard’s shore, just as a horse races to the finish line. Distressed fences, a forced eviction, henchmen and lawyers, petty-theft and quick cash, blood smears, and an estranged father beside the drifting dust, permeate the world of this film; all before the adolescent eyes of defiant Iris. The parallel drawn across the absence of a father, and the lack of boundaries for young Iris thereof, is the primal drive of the story, just as it was for me at that age. Daringly crossing the threshold of physical and emotional boundaries, to merely understand the fragility that holds them together, Iris oscillates through chaos and order as a way of understanding where exactly she stands in this world. Since my early childhood, I couldn’t help but wonder how different my upbringing would be if I had my father around. This feeling of negligence, ambiguously led to my independent seeking self, an explosive temperament ceaselessly challenging the righteousness of authority. A deep-rooted curiosity to traverse things until the end with an innate desire to hold on tight to the reins. My exaggerated self-determination often led to adrenaline highs, full blown chaos, where I thrusted myself to the verge to merely feel something; anything. It was in my adolescent years that I began to know my father, and the acceptance of our bond, even if flawed, has made all the difference. Forever in the breath of my heroine, highlighting her visceral impulsiveness and delicate naiveté, I seek to portray her precarious journey from determination to defeat and finally acceptance; just as this delicate relationship with her father unveils. DIRECTOR'S NOTE SYNOPSIS Synopsis Limassol, Cyprus. Young and defiant IRIS (13), certainly knows her way around the decadent shipyard. She works a part-time summer job at a traditional fish tavern with her friend DANAE (17) and frequently hides out at her beloved SALOME’s (75) place after pulling petty-thefts, in exchange of running her errands. When Iris discovers that Salome is being forcibly evicted from her home for the development of a real estate project in the neighborhood, she takes matters into her own hands and attacks the landlord’s dangerous henchman, winding up at the local police station. With her hard working mother STELLA (35) not answering the phone, Iris is left waiting in a drab room for a while before her estranged father ARIS (38) unexpectedly shows up. Aris at first denies all responsibility, explaining that the kid is not his problem. Unwilling to leave with him, Iris finally does, and is quickly impressed by his trick to make some easy cash out of the situation. Aware of her usefulness in the scam, she threatens to expose him if he doesn’t give her a cut from the earnings. Determined to pay a lawyer who might help with Salome’s eviction case, Iris returns to her father and artfully imposes herself into his life and work. The two begin to form an unlikely bond, with Iris ultimately forced to take a precarious step towards adulthood. Young and defiant, Iris, 13, certainly knows her way around the Limassol shipyard. She frequently engages in petty-theft, then hiding in her elderly friend Salome’s house. When Iris discovers that Salome is being forcibly evicted, she is determined to change this verdict. Iris turns to her estranged father and artfully imposes herself into his life and work. The two form an unlikely bond, through which Iris finds new powers. ​ Nathalie Dennes SCENE PITCH Nathalie Dennes Producer: ​ & Myrsini Aristidou Iris 9 Lab Edition: , Year 2021 Back To Participants PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS PARTICIPANTS OBLIGATIONS PARTICIPATION REGULATION SERIES LAB PARTICIPANTS MENTORS PROFESSIONAL GUESTS JURY PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS FAQ SERIES LAB FILM LAB MENTORS JURY DECISION MAKERS SCOUTS AND PITCHING PARTICIPANTS & PROJECTS LAB FILMS PARTICIPATION APPLICATION PARTICIPANTS OBLIGATIONS RULES & REGULATIONS FILM FAQ FILM LAB HOME TEAM NEWS LABS HOME FILM LAB WHO'S WHO MENTORS JURY SCOUTS AND PITCHING DECISION MAKERS PARTICIPANTS & PROJECTS LAB FILMS PARTICIPATION APPLICATION RULES & REGULATIONS FILM FAQ
