Travelogue: Santorini & Delos, Greece 1954

Posted on 11/20/2017 12:00:00 AM in What We're Watching

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

Travelogue is a series created by my team, launched exclusively here. These short films aim to highlight the changes and continuities of places, as recorded by travelers who visited them in the mid twentieth century. This episode is shot by Arthur and Kate Tode in 1954 during their visit to Greece’s Delos and Santorini Islands. Delos in particular is a fascinating dichotomy of past and present. The island has been considered a place of holy sanctuary in Greek mythology for millennia, as well as an important trading and commercial center. Today, less than 20 people live on the island, and it is one of the most excavated sites in the Mediterranean. While derelict remnants of ancient past are scattered about, as seen in the Todes’ footage, it is clear that modern-era Delos is but a hint of the island’s past grandeur.

Produced by David Conover & Paul Villanova
