The children of the wind

By filming “the children of the wind” I was shocked to discover that the Greek disorganization and dysfunction exists even in sailing, in a country that is ideal for the sport. On the contrary, the high level of Greek athletes’ performance paints quite a different picture. This conflict between disorganization and the top level performances has been my motivation to make this documentary. Upon commencing the shooting, I began to feel like a rescue team. The camera, in the eyes of the athletes, looked like a flare of hope. In the end, this is something created with rare ingredients such as sacrifice, immeasurable effort and valor. The gem of the movie is little Garifalos, who against his parents’ wishes, wants to learn how to sail, as well as Antonis Bougiouris who talks about his beloved National Sailing Team. What was made in the end wasn’t a flare of hope but a firework of joy, inspiration and awakening.
