While You Live, Shine

While You Live, Shine

Greek Premiere

Passionate collectors are commonly thought to be loners, always seeking the valuables that will make up for the lack of intimate relationships. Such is American eccentric musicologist Chris King, a renowned collector of old 78 records, who found a sense of belonging when he discovered the folk music of Epirus in northern Greece. A powerful journey deep into the hypnotic and stirring music of a way of life that has been left behind; the portrait of a man whose life was transformed by these soulful tunes upon finding a sense of self and home in a foreign region far away.
