Soteris Christou’s comedy Small White Envelopes, which won the Award for Best Cypriot Director at the Cyprus Film Days Festival 2019, will be screened at the Summer Cinema of Rialto Theatre next week. Antonis Katsaris won the award for Best Cypriot Actor at the same festival for his performance in the film.
Taking place at SEK parking lot on July 17, the film follows the life of Mishellis, a small-time crook in his late thirties, who is in urgent need of money to repay his gambling debts. After a failed wedding robbery attempt, he tries a more indirect approach where he impersonates a wedding planner in order to steal the money-stuffed envelopes brought as gifts to the wedding of an upper-class family. In the process, he ends up getting a bit closer to his clients than he originally planned.
