Ode to Lesvos is a documentary that tells the stories of the islanders whose uncompromising compassion earned several of the islanders a Nobel Peace Prize nomination.
While most headlines from the region focused on the tragic aspects of the unfolding human drama in the Aegean and Mediterranean seas, Johnnie Walker teamed up with Sundance award winning Syrian documentarian Talal Derki to tell the moving story about the inspiring response of islanders who opened their hearts to the refugees, and whose positivity drove them to rescue people from the sea, give shelter, and provide food and water.
