Acclaimed documentary ‘Hello Anatolia’ will be making its television debut this week on PBS Chicago affiliate WTTW.
Scheduled to debut on April 16th, 2015 at 9pm, the film which is produced by Crescent Street Films, LLC and executive produced by Gregory Pappas with support of the Greek America Foundation, took over 3 years to finalize.
The film has screened in several countries throughout film festivals and event s, winning the acclaim of audiences internationally. The film was the festival opener of the 2014 New York Greek film festival which sold out all showings during its run. The film most recently debuted in the city of Izmir, which sold out its premiere screening as well.
Hello Anatolia follows the journey of filmmaker Chrysovalantis Stamelos, who moves from New York to Izmir (Smyrna), Turkey in order to establish a new life as an expat, all the while searching for his Greek roots in the once cosmopolitan Ottoman city. Combining all of his experiences over the course of two years, Stamelos sheds light on what it means to not only discover your roots up front, but also builds a bridge between cultures.
Scheduled screenings include April 16th at 9pm, April 17th at 3:00pm , and April 18th at 3:30am. For more information, please go to the PBS WTTW link.
