30 Jul “The spring of Therisso”: a new online production of the Foundation.

Through a modern and alternative approach, the video highlights the timelessness of the messages and symbolisms of the revolution of Therisso (1905) with an emphasis on the overthrow of totalitarianism and the defense of individual rights.
The selection of the texts and the direction are by Nikolas Lakiotakis, the music by the French artist SamCat (www.samcat.fr)
Participants: Nikolas Lakiotakis, Aris Maltezakis.
Scientific advisor: George Koukourakis.
Camera: Manos Batzolis.
