The Hellenic Society of Calgary presents the Greek Internation Film Festival Tour of Canada in Calgary.
At The Airport
King Otto (Documentary) | Runtime: 1 hour 20 minutes
In the summer of 2004, audiences looked on in disbelief as the Greek National Football Team, a country that had never previously won a single match in a major tournament, took down the giants of world football to become the unlikeliest of European Champions. The architect behind this unprecedented triumph was legendary German football coach ‘King’ Otto Rehhagel. After accomplishing every major success in Germany, he made the bold decision to leave all he knew behind and work in a foreign country with the underachieving Greek National Team. This is the story of how these two contrasting cultures came together to speak the same language and write a new chapter of Greek mythology. The revival brings back something almost lost, the customs and ethos of a people of another era and an oral tradition that was once a way of life. The archaic bagpipe is now being assimilated by the contemporary music scene and fused with modern sounds, beyond the realm of traditional festivals, thus acquiring a young audience and enjoying great appeal throughout Greece and the world.
