Ichthys is a short documentary directed and produced by Christos Karalias. While I was in charge of the technical objects of the project (cinematography, audio, post production), Christos interviewed the characters of the story.

“A six-member family is living in a land with tall fences outside Athens. A house full of children’s voices, music, a family band and “homemade” movies. A different approach to life and to the upbringing of children into responsible adults, based on love and their relationship with Jesus. A student project that ended up as a complete documentary.”

Enjoy the trailer on Vimeo or Youtube! Meanwhile, you can keep yourself updated with the latest new on the Official Website and follow Ichthys on Facebook.
