The popular men’s lifestyle site presented at the festival the film by Dimitra Babadima “H2O: 2 parts Heart, 1 part Obsession” which tells the fascinating story of the ultra swimmer Spyros Chrysikopoulos who, last summer, successfully completed the 4-way crossing of Toroneos Bay, swimming for 34 consecutive hours so as to cover the distance of 104 kilometers.
H2O: 2 parts Heart, 1 part Obsession was shown on Sunday 19/11 and was enthusiastically applauded by the Adventure Film Festival audience. Spyros himself attended the screening and spoke of his endeavor and of his ambition to break further records.
Antonis Tzavaras, Editor in Chief of Oneman.gr, stated: “Oneman was extremely supportive of Spyros Chrysikopoulo’s effort right from the start. His story is one of surpassing oneself, which touched us and inspired us to the core and after a certain point we felt obliged to share these strong emotions. Dimitra Babadima with her unique insight and her special narrative style has created a film that leaves no viewer untouched whilst Konstantinos Abatzis recorded the effort in a longread that will inspire even the most demanding reader. We are extremely proud of this work and we wish to thank Adventure Film Festival for hosting it".
