Drink and Be Merry / Lena Athanasopoulou

​Dionysus, according to a Homeric hymn, sailed on his ship carrying his very own vineyard. Drink and Be Merrywill take us to a number of wineries in the central Macedonia region. The film aims to present the way in which wine production relates to mythology, history, place, family tradition, and memory. There is something sacred about the way a winemaker relates to his land, his wine and what it is that drinking wine symbolizes according to Greek Mythology. What is a myth, how does it survive through time and what is that hidden something that it reveals for each one of us?
