Best Experimental Film Award at London Greek Film Festival, London UK, 2010.
Empirical Data is a film that deals with someone’s relationship with an environment that is “alien” and often hostile in a sense. This is done through a character who, seeking to socially establish himself, appears to change in order to be accepted by this new environment. The script comes from the personal experience of the actor of Georgian origin David Maltese as an immigrant in Greece, and his trajectory from entering the country to taking up acting, an event that eventually led to his professional recognition and subsequent “integration” into the Greek society. The main part is played by him.
