Photo Tony Barsamian New York City Greek Film Festival (NYCGFF) Director Prof. James DeMetro and Director Christopher Papakaliatis were present for the New York premiere screening of “Worlds Apart” (“Enas Allos Kosmos”), written and directed by Papakaliatis, at the Directors Guild of America theater in Manhattan, on Saturday, October 1st. “Worlds Apart” is a drama that tells three different stories that unite as a single narrative at the end. Each concerns a non-Greek falling in love with a Greek at a time of social and economic upheaval. Papakaliatis also stars in the film, along with Minas Chatzisavvas, winner of the Hellenic Film Academy’s Best Supporting Actor award and American actor, JK Simmons (“Spider Man,” “Oz,” “Whiplash,” “Law and Order”).

Papakaliatis also directed the widely distributed hit Greek film, “What If?” which explored a similar theme; namely, that life is full of choices and different paths – “What if” you had taken a different road, what would your life be like, what could happen?
