Bob Gardner might be blind, but he still wants to see the Acropolis

The retired engineer Bob Gardner lives in Hampton, Illinois, with his wife Nancy. He enjoys Greek food, a glass of ouzou, and listening to tsamika folk music. In fact, he enjoys all things Greek and yearns to visit the Parthenon where, despite his blindness, he is determined to see the monument with ‘the eyes of his soul’. This marvelous film by Stella Kyriakopoulos is a wry look at realising one’s dreams, the wonders of Greek hospitality, and getting up close and personal with the origins of Western civilisation.

Director: Stella Kyriakopoulos
