THE STORY OF THE LAST PAGE

2019 | GREECE | 45΄

The last page of every issue presents the story of one of its salesmen. This story, between a biography and a diary, is written in a first person narrative and in 700 words tells the story of a lifetime. A life that could be a neighbor's story, a family member's or even your own. This project is about stories like this. The SHEDIA salesmen narrate and film their lives. In attendance of the cast and the crew. 

DIRECTOR: Lefteris Filaktos
