Collaboration is such a beautiful thing.
I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to work with such talented people: Demitri and Jessica Douzenis, Panayioti Yannitsos, Jamie Spittal, and Jacky Weng. When you work with such talented vibrant and creative people – it takes your game up. They inspire you, and push you to create things you did not think was even possible. It is such an honour. If you haven’t had the chance to work collaboratively – do it! The struggles, the joys, the experience, it is amazing.
Last year, we created our 2nd short film together “O Tharraleos” I will never forget the experience as a composer.
But more importantly, your support was amazing. Many of you still tell me how “O Tharraleos” touched them. It was such a heartfelt experience which lead us to sweep the GFFW short film festival winning: social media award, critics’ choice award, and people’s choice.
We are blessed to create yet another film together – “Bread Education Freedom”. I hope you enjoy our film this year,it is about the 1972 uprising in Greece and explores the meaning of life. The world often talks about ancient Greece but forgets the beauty of our culture/country now. It seems that media is quick to criticize Greece for its current difficult situation but forgets that the Greek people have been through worse and have risen from it and are better for it. Yesterday was Greek Independence Day and it reminded me of what we have been through as a country and people and the struggles many Greeks are having today – and our ability and faith to rise above it. As my cousin Stavroula stated on her status on FB yesterday, “During this time our language, our religion and our sense of identity remained strong.” I know by remembering their strength, it will inspire the Greeks of today. More importantly, I believe it will inspire anyone who is struggling, regardless of their nationality.
Our film deals with similar issues: I hope our little film touches you.
Again, the film festival has a social media award and we would love to win it again – so if you enjoy the film – please log into youtube and click like! And please share your comments, we love hearing from you 🙂 xoxo thank you – efharisto poli filakia
