Client: Portraits of a city         Date: July 2018           Category: Documentaries

Parisa and the Iranian love for pastry. Thanasis is born and raised in Molyvos, Lesvos. Amir, fastest runner on the island, originally from Afghanistan. Elies followed her heart emigrating to Lesvos. Portraits of a city makes short films about real people, their project is formed by the people, by the place, and by it’s stories. Portraits of a city loves to show these personal portraits of people and therefore understand each other better, with the goal of connecting the world and creating awareness through our videos.

By portraying their stories we create awareness and connection. Without any pretentious to make neither extraordinary nor special videos, Portraits of a city simply aims to show what it is that makes people unique and authentic, their way of living, and to transmit what happens to them. Some stories came out of a simple conversation, in others we knew what we where looking for. But what happened, in all cases, is that we could never predict the outcome. The story could appear in small details, in hidden reactions. We were looking for a story, and we always went away with a better one.
Challenge: Inspire others by showing extraordinary videos of normal people living in Buenos Aires en Lesvos.
Solution: Documentary portrait videos.
Channels: Facebook and www.portraitsofacity.com
