Rainbow Experiment

Things spiral out of control in a high school in Manhattan when a terrible accident involving a science experiment injures a kid for life. A who-dun-it with a how-they-saw-it leads to an explosion of emotions touching on everyone involved: the teachers, the parents, the school authorities and, ultimately, also the students. The Rainbow Experiment deals with the theme of forgiveness. The film shows the events of one day in a single location, where the stories of its 30+ speaking roles converge in a widescreen ensemble work with multilayered soundtracks and Kallas’ experimental use of split screens.

Based on Elaine May’s film “Mikey and Nicky” Writer: Elaine May Nick is desperate, holed up in a basement, suffering from an ulcer and convinced that a local mobster wants him killed. He calls Mikey, his friend since childhood, but when Mikey arrives, Nick won’t go with him: his moods swing. He first wants to go to his wife and kid to say goodbye, then a party at his girlfriend’s apartment, then a movie theater, then the cemetery where his mom is buried. So begins a long night as Mike tries to take care of Nick, calm him down and get him out of town. Tempers fray and the friendship is tested. Meanwhile, a hit man who’s getting information from someone is looking for Nick. Director: Christina Kallas   Cast: Stratos Tzortzoglou as Nicky Kevin Kane as Mikey Editing: Dimitris Zogas Producer: Rebecca Brillhart Production: Stratosphere Art...
