About the Film


A professional cellist has an encounter with a stranger on the subway which has unexpected and far-reaching ramifications on his life. Interwoven with the theme of music and rhythm, this multilayered short film is a mind-bending representation of the cinematic vision of renowned Greek auteur Lanthimos. Nimic offers few answers to the many questions about identity and belonging that it posits. The film premiered at the 72nd Locarno Film Festival.
