Last Song to Xenitia

Last Song to Xenitia

Last Song to Xenitia is a character driven documentary whose compelling protagonist, Vasiliki Scotes, embodies the essence of a Greece that has all but vanished. She is the last living person who carries these ancient songs alive in memory as well as a composer of her own poetry and songs much like Homer did so many thousands of years ago. Her wise insights into immigration, social injustice particularly as it relates to class and the challenges facing women who are born into poverty are universal, transcending culture and country. Her epic final journey to Greece at the age of 103 reveals the challenges, triumphs and complexities associated with immigration. Vasiliki's story gives voice to thousands of immigrants everywhere whose personal triumph is told within the context of a modern Greece facing economic crisis and intense social turmoil. Her personal journey and ancient songs inspire courage and hope for the next generation who face the challenge of realizing their dreams in a country where unemployment has reached sixty percent and already half a million youth have departed for xenitia/foreign lands.
