Student short film, 2010
My first ever attempt to direct anything! Barriers was a short film made as a student project at the Ionian University along with friend and fellow student Anastasia Mastrakouli.
While entering various social groups, people get influences by external factors that shape their personalities and acts. The predefined model, formed by the society for each and every member of it, often traps the individual into a way of life with many restrictions. The enforcement of those restrictions makes people accepting some principals without even thinking about it. This results to the individual developing an insecure and introverted personality. "Barriers" highlights such examples and aims to reducing their potential.
