The Olive Tree

A 24’ documentary directed in 2014 by Vangelis Tremopoulos

The episode 1 presents the historic but also the religious importance of the tree, as well as the effect it has had throughout the centuries in poetry, literature and arts, in general.

We learn the country of origin of the olive tree as well as its natural history and its endurance in time by visiting a 3,000 year old olive tree in the island of Crete.

We also visit in Sparta the one of its kind olive tree and olive oil museum, where we will travel over the centuries through the words of poets, painters, sociologists and share the customs of the Mediterranean people with respect to the sacred tree of the goddess.
