Greece Reopens with New Amorgos Movie

Over three decades since its debut on the silver screen, Amorgos, the Greek island which charmed the global cinephile community through 1988’s cult Luc Besson film The Big Blue, is again set as the alluring background of a new international co-production. Filming is underway for German director/scriptwriter Nana Neul’s feature length movie “Töchter” (Daughters), based on the best-selling novel by Lucy Fricke. This is one of the first international co-productions to resume post-lockdown, thanks to Greece’s successful dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic which allowed flights from Europe to resume last week.
