BENEATH THE OLIVE TREE

2015

Method

My role in this project was to collaborate with directors and create 2D/3D animation and titles under my creative direction.

The story

Academy Award Winner Olympia Dukakis & Orama Pictures present

Beneath The Olive Tree is based on secret journals found buried beneath an olive tree on the island of Trikeri, which served as a concentration camp during the Greek Civil War (1946-1949). 

The journals, buried for close to three decades, tell the inspiring stories of survival of the thousands of women political exiles during the war, and explore the involvement of the US and British governments at the time.

Currently premiering in festivals.
