YORGOS LANTHIMOS: THE ARTIST ON THE COMPOSER
But in reality his protagonist Olivia Colman has won the best actress Oscar for her role in this period black comedy film and today Emma Stone, who basically begged him for her role in “The Favorite”, is ready to work with him again on his new movie. The famous duo is already working on a new short film production in Greece, in collaboration with the Greek National Opera and non-profit organization NEON. The film is said to be filmed on the island of Tinos in the Cyclades. Apart from Stone, Lanthimos’ new film will also feature French actor Damien Bonnard.
The crew consists of renowned Greek artists such as Set Designer Anna Georgiadou, Costume Designer Angelos Mentis, Director of Photography Thodoris Mihopoulos and Film Editor Yorgos Mavropsaridis. The production is made possible thanks to a grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation aiming to enhance the Greek National Opera’s artistic outreach. The film will be presented as part of an installation, accompanied by live orchestral ensembles on 22, 23 and 27 May 2020, at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) in Athens. Lanthimos’ new short film is the second commission for “The Artist on the Composer”, a three-year collaboration between the Opera and the NEON Organization for Culture and Development.
