Pythagoras from Samos causes competition in Mediterranean cinema between Greece and Spain. Fountain of life Productions have decided to release a movie about the great Greek mathematician and philosopher and has also ensured a creme de la creme cast including Academy award actors and actresses. Spain has guaranteed motivation and hope to be the one to get the job.
Greece, however is still in the running and trying to convince the producers to assign the direction to them. This is why Greece will need direct financial support from the Ministry of Culture, which has been informed of the intentions and the mobilization of the community in Samos. In the end, it’s going to be all about money but the overall comfort says Mrs Lilet Botasi, director manager of the Greek company Inkas Film Production, competing along with Spain in a Bras de fer match. We will know the decision of the UK within the next 15 days. We currently have more chances, we are on the right tracks. Samos was alerted just last week, when the company announced the news for the new film. The local community does not want to miss anything with this great opportunity for the island. “We are in discussions with the Greek company that is engaged with the production. Initially, we will organize the hosting part as well as the catering for the entire film crew. We estimate that the amount required is approximately 200,000 euros, and we hope to find some sponsorship. We have already established a coordinating Committee (tel. +30 2273061238, +30 2273061140), and we will inform the local residents as well. With this film our tourism will be launched sky high, and that’s a big deal for us as it was said by Mayor of Culture and Tourism in the Municipality of Pythagoreon Mr Nick Lycos.
