Ode to Lesvos – Short Film

Most probably i am really biased with this Marketing Campaign but i am really happy to see this getting exposure and showing some really nice stories from the people of Lesvos.

According to theconversation.com “Johnnie Walker, part of consumer giant Diageo commissioned Talal Derki, best known for his award-winning feature documentary Return To Homs, to make a film about the island of Lesvos, which last year helped around half a million refugees making the dangerous voyage across the Aegean Sea.Some of the islanders (who are featured in the film) were nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize for their actions. These included fishermen Stratis Valamios and Thanassis Marmarinos, and 85-year-old Aimilia Kamvisi.”
