Black Out p.s. Red Out
Description: After his successful documentary Ram (1989), it took director Menelaos Karamaghiolis a decade to jump to feature films with Black Out, a youth-oriented psychological thriller and a love story. An Air Force pilot is declared missing over the Aegean Sea, but his girlfriend keeps getting mysterious recordings of his voice describing their stormy love affair. The rest of the plot is very much like Othello, Diego appearing in the form of an ex-boyfriend who drops the acid of jealousy into the unsuspecting pilot's ear and convinces him to disappear to test the fidelity of his love. If one cannot trust friends, who can one trust? The film uses black and white for the present, color for frequent flashbacks. Hanna Schygulla makes an appearance in the film. The film won the Third Prize for fiction, Best Debut-Film Director, Best Leading Actress, and Best Editing awards of the State Film Awards presented following the Thessaloniki Film Festival, 1998.~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, All Movie Guide
