Moderation, set in Egypt, Greece and Italy, revolves around a female horror director (Maya Lubinsky) and a screenwriter (Anna De Filippi), whose latest collaboration is haunted by encounters with its ‘raw material’ and the escalation of conflicting desires.
Faced with the disintegration of their project, the director becomes more and more drawn into conversations with the actors she has cast (Aida El Kashef, Michele Valley and Giovanni Lombardo Radice), which reflect on the way horror traverses the affective and material realities of their lives on and off screen.
Moderation was commissioned by the curator Nadja Argyropoulou for Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative (GR) and co-produced by Beirut (EG) and Nomas Foundation (IT) with the support of the Elephant Trust (UK) and the Greek Film Centre (GR).
