The documentary about the most controversial island in the Mediterranean is spectacular, funny but also dark, dramatic and emotional — it leaves no stone unturned, the press wrote .
“It’s a bittersweet account of life during four months of frenzy, alcohol, drugs, sex and big money.”
The film provides answers and although it’s fun to watch, it goes deeper than the tanned skin of tourists, into the soul of the island.
“It’s our way to contribute to other Greeks’ efforts to bringing audiences closer not just to our tourism and culture but also to the problems, solved and unsolved, of our country,” Mastorakis says.
“The film has been made by Greeks but that doesn’t mean it takes sides or is biased. Usually, we’re overcritical with the one we love and that includes Mykonos,” he adds.
The world premiere for the public and guests is expected in June at the Manto open air theatre, described by Mastorakis as “a jewel of the island.”
