Yiorgos of Kedros - Legacy, Transformation, Time, Reconsideration

Improved Synopsis: This documentary offers a timeless voyage through the transformative lens of father and son filmmakers, deeply intertwined with the evolution of Donoussa, a secluded island in Greece. In 1972, the island was a rustic refuge untouched by modernity, offering neither electricity nor the footprint of tourists. Here, Yiorgos Kolozis found his solitude, becoming a part of the landscape as "Yiorgos of Kedros." Over the years, he chronicled the island's subtle shifts, immortalizing remnants of bygone eras. Upon his death in 2009, the torch passed to his son Yiannis, who found himself stepping into his father's footprints, not just on the sands of Kedros beach but within the frames of his father's narrative. As the island changes with the ebbs and flows of time, so does their story, serving as a contemplative reflection of the present moment in the backdrop of the past.
