Osiki the little palace of aoria



Distance is the debut short of writer/director Sofia Exarchou


A block of flats in the middle of Athens. A common interior backyard. A day and a night in the lives of Eleni and Alexis and an absence which will change their everyday reality.


Born in Athens in 1979, Sofia Exarchou studied electrical engineering at the National Technical University of Athens and filmmaking at the Stavrakos Film School. She took an MA in “Études cinématographiques et audiovisuelles” at the École Supérieure d’Audiovisuel in Toulouse, France.
