Reliving precious memories.
Capturing the Moment is an emotional format that sees individuals reveal their personal experiences and learnings around universally complex issues such as love, politics, careers and family.

This documentary takes us back to...
...the troubled days of 1943. A team of young airmen, of the allied forces, is being shot down out the coast of Sifnos. They manage to reach the island and get rescued by the locals. We will get to know our heroes, through the eyes of their descendants and know about their actions that echo to our days..
A lifeguard who teaches refugees how to swim, two blind people communicating through sculpture at the NPO “Lighthouse for the blind”, the preparation of the front page of a big cooperative newspaper, a Syrian cantor and musician, a Congolese feast at Lesvos, a personal ad… What do they all have in common?
All these and many more are the pieces of the mosaic depicting a version of the contemporary Greek society characterized by solidarity, by the need to enhance cooperation and reflection on our lives in order to claim a more spiritual every day life. However, at the same time, one can discern the loneliness of those who crave to find a life partner or a friend while fantasizing about an elsewhere. A whole world struggling to look onwards to the future.
A family table, a piece of fanouropita, a corpse..

We often wonder what happens to people who finish a rehabilitation program and then try to integrate into society. Do they succeed?
This documentary portrays the cases of people who finished the 18 ANO program and have been sober for some years now. We watch snapshots of their lives and we listen to them talking about their efforts to find a job, to become creative, to continue or to reverse unfinished business, to face the problems bequeathed by their addiction, to build a new relationship with their parents and their children, as well as friendships and loves.
