    NICOSIA: Award winning writer/director Christos Siopachas is in postproduction with Five Shilling Nylon, a love story set in 1950 about a miller whose life is turned upside down by the arrival of a young married woman at the mill.

    The main characters are played by Chris Greco and Kristy Papadopoulou. The cast includes Giannis Kokkinos, Koullis Nicolaou, Stelios Anronikou, Lenia Sorokou and Demetris Xystras. Vladimir Subotic is the DoP.

    Marios Piperides and Marios Petrondas are producing through AMP Filmworks. The budget of the film was close to 1 m EUR. 

    “The film was supported by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus and through other local business through services, in-kind contributions, fee deferrals and capitalizations,” Marios Piperides told FNE.
