About the fillm:
The fim Border Souls by Takis Bardakos is a documentary about the beauty of the refugee tragedy and solidarity in the chaos of Eidomeni.
From the absurdity of war and the refugee tragedy, to the dramatic passage from the Aegean to the northern border of Greece, the pitiable of Eidomeni΄s camp becomes “Europe’s shame.”
When Europe closes its borders to Greece, trapping the impoverished refugees, they become invisible to the outside world. They become the “Border Souls.”
But hours away from the mayhem, one peaceful man, elder Christodoulos, and the nuns of the Panagia-Fovera Prostasia (Virgin Mary of Great Protection) Monastery unite with the surrounding villages of Halkidiki to share their generosity and solidarity with the isolated refugees, illuminating the capacity of a crisis-ridden society to change the world with fewer words and more action...
