“The mountains are calling, and I must go.” – John Muir
“Into The Mountains” is my 3rd personal experimental short documentary film, after the award winning films “Keep Looking Up” and “Forest of Tranquility”.
“Into The Mountains” is a visual journey through the beautiful mountains of Epirus, Greece.
The idea for this film was formed in my mind while I was filming “Forest of Tranquility” back in 2019.
During that time, I had also spent many days inside the forests and the mountains for filming and during that time, I made a promise to myself that I will create a film dedicated to those beautiful mountains.
I had started working on the preparations of the production at the start of 2020, but then a powerful and unseen enemy, the coronavirus, changed our world and our lives, probably forever.
After almost two years of restrictions, curfews and quarantines, I finally had the chance to travel to my favorite location, into the mountains of Epirus Greece, which I missed so much.
In this film, I tried to capture some natural and beautiful sceneries into the mountains.
Locations that can calm our souls with their simplicity and minimalism, no matter if it has beautiful clear skies or even bad weather.
My goal was also to avoid when possible, to capture anything that it is not created by nature. If I succeeded in this goal, its up to you to decide.
As already said back in 2019, I have to admit that the days I spent into the mountains while filming this project were truly amazing, inspiring and healing for my soul.
