The “Dreams Can’t Be Quarantined” video is a project of particular importance.
Taking into account the global pandemic, this project reminds viewers that no matter how difficult the times we are living in may be, we should always stay positive and think about the best days which are yet to come.
The video was created by Aris Katsigiannis, a well-known Greek director and photographer based in Athens. He recalls that the idea came from Greece’s nationwide restriction on movement. He wanted to showcase positivity in light of the global crisis we are living in.
Living in lockdown, Aris remembered the amount of video material he had collected from shooting around Greece. Infinite beautiful shots that could be used to create something very strong. That’s how the idea for the “Dreams Can’t Be Quarantined” video began.
After endless hours of editing and the help of his creative team, he assembled a video that gives an optimistic message to all global citizens. The universal message that dreams cannot be quarantined and that we must not let the virus and this whole situation make us forget our dreams.
The video shares a story through Greece’s point of view, but also gives voice to people worldwide that are dealing with this crisis.
People from Portugal, USA, Italy, Nepal, Colombia, Greece, France, Australia, Argentina, South Korea, Kazakhstan, Chile, England, Bolivia, Spain, Venezuela, Indonesia, Indigenous, Kuwait, Puerto, Pakistan , Romania, Norway, Brazil, Canada, Serbia, Germany, India, Dubai, Ecuador, Russia, Sweden, Netherlands, Slovakia, Costa Rica, Lebanon, Hong Kong, Ireland, Morocco, Cyprus, Belgium and Morocco share their own positive message. Thus striking the pessimism that has plagued the whole world.
We might all be scared, confused and fighting this crisis in our own way, but one thing is for sure…our dreams cannot be quarantined. We are all in this together. So we need to stay positive and united and better days will come. Our dreams can’t be quarantined.
How much magic can fit in this 4 minute video? See for yourself…
