Fulbright Greece celebrates 70 years of academic and cultural exchanges between Greece and the Unites States. The Foundation commissioned us with a short documentary video.

The documentary presents:
– The roots and the principles of the Fulbright program, explained by Senator Fulbright himself through archival footage.
– The history and the continuous presence of Fulbright Foundation Greece, the first Fulbright office in Europe and the second in the world.
– A growing community of Greek and US alumni and the ripple effect of their Fulbright experience shaping new attitudes based on the values of education and mutual understanding.
