The World of Greeks

Documentary • 85’ • Greece • 2018

Director: Τokomburu
Language: Greek
Subtitles: English
Rating: Not Rated

Ancient Greece means harmony, order, and tranquility. It’s a world defined by rationality, sobriety and moderation.  But it’s also a world full of struggle, heroic clashes and violent conquests.  The world of the Greeks was shaped by learning from other cultures while shaping these cultures at the same time. Its geographical but also cultural frontiers have never ceased shifting back and forth.  As we move from mythology to archeology, and visit museums through to the world, we unfold “The World of the Greeks”.  A world that evokes pride but also raises skepticism.   “The World of the Greeks” series aims to promote antiquity’s most important archaeological sites, monuments and museums.

Enlarging Greece

Documentary • 67’ • Greece • 2018

Director: Euaggelinou Katerina
Language: Greek
Subtitles: English
Rating: Not Rated

Enlarging Greece” is a historical documentary of nine episodes which focus on the establishment of Greece as a nation- state and its gradual territorial expansion. Making clear that this was the main goal of Greek foreign policy and the major cause of war between Greece and its neighboring countries, it starts with the founding of the country and the formation of the first border line from the bay of Arta to the bay of Volos.
It describes in chronological order, the forming of the new  borders, devoting one episode to each region that was claimed and eventually integrated into the greek territory as part of the Greek State: Ionian islands (1864), Thessaly (1881 ), Epirus (1913), Crete (1913), Macedonia (1913), NE Aegean Islands (1923), Thrace (1923), Dodecanese (1947).
In addition, the episodes will involve the often radically different local history of each region until the moment that the international and internal political circumstances matured and allowed their claim via war or diplomacy.
Last but not least, it analyzes Greece’s complex relationship with the Great Powers from which it was totally dependent on at that time, as well as its conflict with the Ottoman Empire and the neighboring Balkan countries that often claimed the same territories.

Soaring at 26,000 feet without a drop of fuel, nothing is predictable. Not the weather, not the technology. And certainly not the fate of a man, alone for five days in a fragile, first-of-its-kind aircraft with nothing but ocean below. Point of No Return takes you behind the headlines of the first solar-powered flight around the world-where two courageous pilots take turns battling nature, their own crew, and sometimes logic itself, to achieve them impossible. Not just to make history, but to inspire a revolution.
