The Last Kytherians

James Prineas is at it again! This time filiming the Last Kytherians.

I’ve completed the first of 12 of what will be a series of film portraits about some of the remaining families who live a farming life on Kythera, much like our ancestors did. Called "The Last Kytherians", it will document the few farmers left on the island who still live from raising animals, tending fields & market gardens, making honey and even collecting sempraviva on rocky cliff faces. I'll be making a submission to the Kytherian Association of Australia to fund the series, which will be shot all over the island.

Any support which you can offer would be much appreciated!    

Episode 1 of The Last Kytherians: 
The Chlentzos Family of Logothetianika

Does the name Chlentzos sound familiar? That’s because they are cousins to Mary Chlentzos Alfieris, wife of KSOCA co-founder John Alfieris and all their descendants who attend the Panigyi each year!


Mark your calendars!
