Cate Blanchett is set to serve as an executive producer in Christos Nikou's upcoming film, Apples. The Greek filmmaker's project was recently screened at the Venice Film Festival's Orizzonti section and later toured the Telluride and Toronto International Film Festivals.

The Greek-language movie, which is a strong contender for Greece's official selection for Oscars 2020, takes place amidst an unpredictable, sweeping pandemic that causes people to develop sudden amnesia.

According to the official logline, a man finds himself enrolled in a recovery programme designed to help him build a new life. His treatment: performing daily tasks prescribed by his doctors on cassette tape, and capturing these new memories with a Polaroid camera. 

"Apples is an unforgettable, prescient cinematic experience. Christos Nikou's film is a unique and beautiful fable about memory and loss, which resonates deeply with the unrecognisable terrain in which we currently find ourselves. We are invigorated to be in creative dialogue with Christos and to help share his warmth, humour and his fascinating world view," Blanchett, Upton, and Francini said in a joint statement.       

Nikou and Stavros Raptis co-wrote the film, which stars Aris Servetalis in the lead role.

Apples is produced by Iraklis Mavroidis, Angelo Venetis, Aris Dagios, Mariusz Wlodarski, and Nikou.
