21:00 ΤHE HISTORY OF GREEK SHIPPING – 76’ – 2018 – Greece – PREMIERE Director: Victoria Velopoulou
Entering around the evolution of shipbuilding, we narrate the importance and the trajectory of shipping in Greece and the larger Mediterranean area. A journey from Papilla and the first sailboat to the Liberty. The creation of a superpower in the trade sector. The role of ships in historical battles. More importantly, the development and rise of a maritime culture, in which the sea, the archipelago and the naval element played a major role. The driving force of this culture was the ship, which crossed seas, transporting goods, people and ideas throughout the globe.
Aegean Film Festival will be in Paros Park on 24, 25, 26 & 27 July
