Almost one year ago I took a trip to Greece. I lived in Tel Aviv at the time, so it was only a quick flight to get there. I left in the early AM, and was swimming in the Mediterranean, drinking Ouzo, and eating grilled sardines by noon.
I went to visit my friend Alex, a half-Greek-half-Canadian travel writer and journalist. Alex is deeply proud of his Greek heritage, and hell-bent on showing outsiders that Greece is not all poverty, tear-gas, and corruption.
Alex is a writer, and I am filmmaker. Together, our goal was to interview as many Greek entrepreneurs as possible, in the hopes of uncovering a different layer of Greek society. One that celebrates social innovation and ingenuity. And one that is slowly steering the Greek economy back in the right direction.
Below is the video result of my 10-day trip to Greece.
