    TBILISI: The Greek-born Oscar-nominated cinematographer/director Phedon Papamichael is currently in postproduction with the thriller Light Falls, which he shot during the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown in Greece in 2020. The film is a Georgian/Albanian/Greek coproduction with Georgia’s EnkenyFilms involved in the project.

    A young couple vacationing on a Greek island explores an abandoned hotel. An accident and a clash of different worlds set off a spiral of violence and revenge. The director described the film as "a bit of a revenge thriller about a lesbian couple travelling to Greece".

    The cast includes Georgian actors Elene Makharashvili, Nini Nebieridze and Lasha Zambakhidze, alongside Elensio, Makis Papadimitriou, Silvio Goskova and Juxhin Plovishti.

    The film is produced by EnkenyFilms in coproduction with Albania’s Ska-Ndal and Greek Topcut Modiano. The project is supported by Ekonome.

    The producers are Sven Dagones, Phedon Papamichael, Genc Permeti, and the coproducers are Stamatis Athanassoulas, Sophio Bendiashvili and Bacho Meburishvili.

    Associate producer Irakli Rodonaya and executive producers Temur Ugulava and Lasha Zambakhidze are also part of the team. The total budget is almost 740,000 EUR.

    Enkeny Films is a Tbilisi-based production company founded as a collaboration between Academy Award®-nominated cinematographer Phedon Papamichael and Georgian producers Bacho Meburishvili, Sophio Bendiashvili and Sophio Orjonikidze. In 2019, Enkeny Films became the first Georgian company to bring a major Hollywood blockbuster, Fast & Furious 9, to the country and opened up the local industry for future large-scale international projects.

    Phedon Papamichael was born in Athens and moved with his family to Munich. Papamichael now counts over 45 features to his credit as director of photography, including the early blockbusters While You Were Sleeping and Cool Runnings, as well as Phenomenon, all directed by Jon Turteltaub.
