Earth Diaries: Santorini

Posted on 6/4/2019 12:00:00 AM in What We're Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

When one speaks of Santorini, no description short of paradise can suffice. The island is one of five that constitutes an archipelago of the same name in the Aegean Sea. As historian Nicole Gemelos explains, the islands’ multifaceted history is visible within the layers of its exposed rock formations. These islands circle around a caldera, which collapsed thousands of years ago as a result of a volcanic eruption. Santorini certainly has unparalleled views: deep azure waters and domed rooftops, whitewashed houses that absorb the sun’s light, and black beaches reminiscent of its volcanic heritage.

Produced by Cynthia Younker
