Emma Stone and Yorgos Lanthimos Reunite for Black-and-White Short ‘Bleat’. The film is the second work to be commissioned as part of the Greek National Opera and nonprofit NEON program “The Artist on the Composer.” French actor Damien Bonnard also stars.
“Bleat” will have its world premiere May 6, accompanied by live music ensembles May 6–8 in Stavros Niarchos Hall at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in Kallithea, Greece. Thodoros Mihopoulos serves as cinematographer of the eerie short; its plot is currently under wraps.
“Bleat” was filmed on the Greek island of Tenos in February 2020 featuring instrumental pieces by J.S. Bach / Knut Nystedt and Toshio Hosokawa, which will be performed live at the premiere events by soloists Angelina Tkatcheva (cimbalom) and Wu Wei (sheng), the “Maria Callas” quartet, and the Chorus of the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation.
