Suntan by Argyris Papadimitropoulos (2016)

Nestled in the blue waters of the archipelago, the Antiparos island, a small island of Cyclades, has been employed magnificently in the film Suntan (by Argyris Papadimitropoulos, 2016) as it conveys all the heat of the Greek summer made up of white hot sandy beaches perfect for seeing the red lights of sunset; but also wild breath-taking panoramas amazing for young explorers ready to leave for the next adventure.
