The Journey Documentary

I collaborated with film-maker Maria Iliou as the historical advisor in the making of the documentary film "The Journey: The Greek American Dream" (2007, 87mins.) and the companion exhibition of photographs used in the documentary. The rich visual material depicting the life of Greek immigrants that Iliou located in archives and collections in the United States is arranged around a three part historical narrative. It recounts the arrival and settlement of the Greeks at the turn of the twentieth century, their gradual assimilation into American society and the revival of Greek ethnicity in the 1970s. The Athens daily Kathimerini described it as "a rich story wonderfully told and revealed".
