PROJECTS > PAPOU DOC
My grandfather, also named James Loizou, was born in Cairo and raised in Cyprus and to this day, continues to chant every Sunday at the Greek Orthodox church that he co-founded. Papou, a master of languages and dance, sat down with me for an interview in 2012. Editing his and Yiayia's story into a short-form documentary has been an on-going labor of love.
Good friend and former colleague Ian Alexander Scott served as videographer on the unfinished project. He captured Papou, Yiayia and their home with a gentle attention to light and detail.
