An old and abandoned building, where "Deilina" ["Dusks"] (one of the first taverns with live music in Skopelos) used to be, is the "keystone" of this documentary.
For a lot of famous musicians, who continues to carry the history of Rebetiko on the island until these days, Deilina was their first music stage. Musicians such as Giorgos Xintaris, Kostas Kalafatis, Pavlos Vasiliou etc.
Spending time with them and getting knowing them, we can understand that the story of Rebetiko music in Skopelos still continues. We can see and feel the music evolution that made Skopelos an "island of Rembetiko".
Through this documentary, through the words of the musicians and the everyday people, we learn the history of the island and the assimilation of rebetiko's culture from the locals. We will listen to famous songs, as well as quite rare ones, that will guide us to the magic and the atmosphere from another era.
The documentary "Beaches and Dusks" is a no budget project, the creation of which began six years ago and has already completed shooting. It is currently in the process of post-production and we hope to finish it so it can begin its journey to festivals and cinemas in Greece and abroad, in 2022.
