Mount Olympus headed for an Oscar
When students of New York universities watched the documentary about Olympus entitled “Elassona: The secret path to mount Olympus” the production company, Ellopia Films USA, and the director Athina Krikeli were surprised by their reactions. “Does the mountain Olympus really exist? Isn’t it just a mythical mountain?,” they wondered.
“We could not imagine how it was possible students of Classics not knowing that Olympus is real!” Krikeli explained to the Athens News Agency adding that this is how it all started.
“We decided to create 12 documentaries in English, which will be accessible on the internet, so that everyone can learn about Olympus. In addition, once the documentaries are completed, they will be broadcast by National Geographic,” she underlined.
After the world premiere of the second documentary entitled “Mount Olympus, the creation” last Friday, at the ancient Dion, it now heads for the 2017 Oscars.
