BRIEF

Twentieth century. Two World Wars brought destruction and suffering to humanity. At the same time, they led to the rapid development of technology, as land, air and sea war vehicles became the protagonists of military operations.

Today, several years after the end of the Great Wars, historic vehicles that have left an indelible mark on the Greek Armed Forces are preserved in private collections and war museums in the country. Residing there as silent protagonists of a devastating story…

Some daring owners go beyond time and engineering. With patience and care they give them life again – rendering them fully functional, even today. The history of each vehicle or aircraft is unique and must be recorded and rescued.

Guided with historical expertise and new visualization techniques, we record history in order to tell a timeless story –  even when these vehicles cease to be alive.

A history professor at Democritus University of Thrace and a photogrammetry crew from Gullwing and Cosmote TV, record these stories of living legend in this unique documentary series.
