An exceptional piece of documentary TV
5 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

As a Greek, I have to congratulate Joanna and the production team for an amazingly well done piece on Greece, its history and its people. In my 45 years of age, this is the best piece I've seen, not because of its historical value (undoubtedly there) or its photography. Not because of its diversity of places visited or stories unfolded. Joanna does an amazing job in depicting the Greek soul, how it evolved through the years, what shaped it in becoming what it is today. As a foreigner, she captures and depicts it better than the most seasoned Greek anthropologist could, via short profiles of Greeks from all walks of life, from urban old ladies living a self-exiled life, to contemporary master mixologists and game-changing mayors. I watched it in awe with tears in my eyes often giving way to my sense of pride for the history and hope for the future of my country. If you are interested in understanding Greece and its people, I recommend starting here. Joanna, thank you. I can't say anything simpler nor powerful enough for your work.
