, which pocketed the Award for Best Irish Feature. Nikou’s film, premiered in the Orizzonti strand of the Venice Film Festival last year, is set amidst a worldwide pandemic that causes sudden amnesia and follows the middle-aged Aris (played by Aris Servetalis), who finds himself enrolled in a recovery programme designed to help unclaimed patients build new identities. To the Moon, presented in the Giornate degli Autori section of Venice, is a beautiful and poetic cinematic ode to the moon, made primarily from international cinematic archives in combination with literary fragments and original moonlit cinematography filmed across five continents.
