The film and the idea of promoting Delos, began from a written piece, by ALEXANDRA DIMOU, a Mykonos-based attorney and co-authored by DIMITRIS KARAVOLAS. The film and the campaign to promote the island of Delos was created in an effort to draw global attention to the island, a UNESCO World Heritage site, just a short sea journey from Mykonos. The island of light is unique in that it is the largest archaeological site in Europe with a wide variety of cultures inhabiting and worshiping there for more than 3 millennia. The film is narrated by international star of stage and screen, GEORGE CHORRAFACE. The Greco-French actor served as the first “ambassador for Delos,” in 2015, promoting the unique nature of the island. Professor NICHOLAOS C. STAMBOULIDIS, Director of the MUSEUM OF CYCLADIC ART, has been appointed to serve as ambassador for Delos in 2016.
