-My film work centers around the human being, his/her relationships, needs, and the importance of communication as well as the bridges that must exist between persons of different identity, language, race, religion. Through the acknowledgement and acceptance of emotions, such as understanding, love, compassion, we recognize the core of the human soul.
Spiros Charalambous/FOREVER YOUNG
-I became a filmmaker because it is the most natural and yet challenging way for me to express my ideas, fears and emotions. It is my art form. It holds the perfect balance between isolation and collaboration.
