A film by Theo Prodromidis
An early retired worker is looking for the privilege to be loved and develops a secret hobby, pushed by his inability to complain in a society losing its benefits.
The Silver Years is a film about people’s relationship to loss and how it merges with privilege
and it explores the affectual space between those two essentially opposing notions.
Taken as an example of the need for the re-organisation of priorities in order to resist in what is a new battlefront to be emerging all over the world, the film’s character is faced with a complete breakdown of the notions of welfare and community.
The research for The Silver Years was started by the director as a Laureate of the Institut Francais residency programme
at Cité internationale des arts, Paris with the support of the Onassis Foundation.
The Silver Years is developed, with the support of the Greek Film Centre, as part of the Feature Expanded, a training programme by HOME Artist Film & Lo Schermo Dell’Arte, co-funded by the Creative MEDIA Europe.
