The documentaries “Imvros-Tenedos islands; A tale of Memories” provide a historical overview from the Balkan wars to the destruction of Asia Minor, and the Treaty of Lausanne till nowadays.

The documentaries are directed by Irini Sarioglou and Panos Angelopoulos. Original music by Andreas Katsigiannis, song by George Dalaras and Zülfü Livaneli.Narration done by Konstantinos Markoulakis and Maria Nafpliotou.

The first of these documentaries about Imvros –an island occupied by 180 Greek residents- will be screened at the Hellenic American Union (duration: 50min.) An open discussion with director Irini Sarioglou (Dr. of History) and author Nannina Sakka- Nikolakopoulou will follow.
