On Saturday night, the Deputy Head of the Western Greece Prefecture, Mr Giorgos Georgiopoulos, declared the start of the 19th Olympia International Film Festival for Children and Young People in an amazingly crowded theater. The leading roles for the night were in the responsibility of some “ex-Zizania” of the Olympia Festival; meaning children that had been “recruited” to the festival by making their own films for Camera Zizanio – some of them at the very beginning, 19 years ago.

Look Beyond Borders

For the visual art of 16th Camera Zizanio’s  catalogue cover we selected the drawing of a 15-year-old refugee girl from Afghanistan, Sahar Rezai.

She survived from the war in her country, and after a laborious – due to her reduced mobility – and dangerous journey of 50 days, she travelled through the Aegean Sea but she got trapped in Greece when its borders were closed.

Now, in a camp of refugees, she spends the endless hours of immobility in her wheelchairs by drawing the big refugee odyssey, the disappointments and the dreams.

  • It is dedicated to all the children of the world who are seeking after a hospitable place to stand on and create.
