RF is a 2010 short film written and directed by Stavros Liokalos

Mass living buildings, devoid of any external expression of life. Blind facades, closed windows, closed curtains. Introversion. Suffocation. And an army of vibrating antennas on the extremity of each one of these hyper-organisms feeding its entrails with dubious messages from afar. The film makes fun of totally tragic situations, suspecting that “People don’t live in a right or wrong way, but in a way they don’t comprehend.” (Guy Debord)


Summary: When a man tries to fix his television aerial on a day like any other, in a city like yours or mine, a series of unexpected events turns this everyday upside down in a most magical way.
