January 16, 2019

ASTORIA – Queens College, City University of New York, (Sociology Department) and the film production company “dotmov” based in Athens, Greece announced their cooperation for the terms of the production of a full length documentary entitled “Astoria.”

The neighborhood of Astoria seen as a symbol of Greek immigration will be presented for the first time through a documentary which will be screened in cities around the world as well as on TV in Greece, the USA, and other countries.

Everyday stories of immigrants from the Greek community but also a historical track back to the past of the area will highlight all the elements that were preserved in order to make the country where the immigrants settled a more familiar place. Through this procedure of preservation an American area was transformed into a typical Greek city right in the heart of the Big Apple.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
