The documentary is about 18 people from every corner of the planet who decided instead of holidays to travel at their own expenses in the small village of Isternia in Tinos island, Greece. Instead of spending 2 weeks on a sunbed with sunscreen they spent 2 weeks with a shovel and a rake. They wanted to join one of the hundreds of workcamps taking place each year around the world. The purpose of the program was to give life to a marble build path of unique historical importance that connects the village on the side of the hill with the sea and it was organized by the NGO Citizens in Action.
Our team practically lived for two weeks with the volunteers. Actually one member of our team, Panagiotis was one of the workcamp leaders. All together we were sleeping along with the volunteers, we ‘ve been dining together and while we were not holding any of our cameras we were grabbing the tools to help with the cleaning of the path.
There were 2 difficult weeks, trying to sustain ourselves between sun, chargers, salt, cables and shovels. However it was worth doing it. We managed to meet the amazing volunteers, we ‘ve been embraced from the local community and enjoy this picturesque island.
The post production was the most overwhelming process for us since we realized the potentials of the whole outcome. We didn’t startle for a moment and we managed to get the best possible outcome, at least for us, and always keeping in consideration that this is our first professional work.
In the same time we had the chance to have as narrator the worldwide acknowledged painter from Greece Giorgos Siountas and being coached by Evgenia Lyroudia.
The agony is over, our movie is ready and we booked a place to screen the avant premiere. We ‘ve been searching many places, but Vryssaki won our heart. It is an active and upcoming region in the field of the contemporary cultural events of Athens. The aim is to recreate an autonomous, independent and multidimensional venue and promote both activist events and experimental, artistic and creative activities. This was definitely our place so we arranged the screening with free entrance and an after-screening party at the lobby on the 8th of January 2013 at 20:00.
