While a humanitarian crisis unfolded in Europe, as continued the vilification of people fleeing violent conflict and untold misery. There are many who could learn a great deal from Kostas: the warm-hearted Athenian in this short film who believes ‘no victims are necessary.’
Kostas is a bearded Athenian oozing character. His twenty-four carat heart bears overwhelming compassion and empathy. Every day he takes his stove and a small army of volunteers to the streets of Athens to cook. ‘Free food for all’ he told me, ‘for solidarity, respect and love for all people.’
