Never in a hundred years, a seasoned burglar should be caught in a high-tech apartment with millions of dollars of art Inside. With no exit, the residence became his living hell as time is not on his side.

Here is the full synopsis:

Inside tells the story of Nemo, an art thief trapped in a New York penthouse after his heist doesn’t go as planned. Locked inside with nothing but priceless works of art, he must use all cunning and invention to survive.

LRM Online’s Gig Patta spoke with director Vasilis Katsoupis, art director Leonardo Bigazzi, and producer Giorgos Karnavas on the unique production of Inside that included the set production, real art pieces, and a master class performance from Willem Dafoe as the leading cast member inside the apartment.

Vasilis Katsoupis was a lecturer at the School of Film Studies, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and shot for many advertising campaigns and music videos. His first feature work was with the music documentary My Friend Larry Gus in 2015, a narrative fiction film that tells the story of a young musician pursuing his dream.

Giorgos Karnavas is the founder and producer of Synch Festival and has promoted shows for artists such as Pet Shop Boys, Nine Inch Nails, Happy Mondays, and more. In 2011, he entered the film production side and became a member of A.C.E. His most recent credits included Ruben Ostlund’s Triangle of Sadness, Omar el Zohairy’s Feathers, and Giorgos Goussis’ Magnetic Fields.

Since 2008, Leonardo Bigazzi has been the curator of Lo shermo dell’arte – Contemporary Art and Cinema Festival. He was the founder and co-director of Feature Expanded from 2015 to 2018 and also the curator of VISIO – European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images since 2012. In 2022, he co-curated the exhibition Penumbra on the occasion of the 59th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia, and the program of commissions Mascarilla-19.

Inside is playing in theaters nationwide tomorrow, March 17.
