Film and Cinema Studies / Documentary Production

With a postgraduate degree in Communication Studies, a specialization in documentary filmmaking, and ten years of experience in the audiovisual sector, Angelos Tsaousis decided in 2011 to focus mainly on producing/directing creative documentaries with an international co-production potential. His main objective is to explore the potential of using documentary form as a social impact and educational tool. Being a nomad himself, travelling around the world and exploring human stories is his motivation for creating cinematic narratives that speaks of social issues.
The New Plastic Road is his first major feature length documentary film that explores the socioeconomic changes in the mountainous and destitute communities in Pamirs, in southeastern Tajikistan. A co-production with the German/French broadcaster ZDF/Arte, and a MEDIA Development Fund and Greek Film Centre supported project, it tries to understand the effect the reconstruction of the old Silk Road has on the life of the main film character: Davlat, who is a well-respected businessman in the region and a humble father of three children.
With extended participation on pitching forums, knowledge of budgeting, crowdfunding and developing treatments for international projects, but also mastering directing skills on storytelling, Tsaousis never stops exploring the potential of using documentary as a social impact tool. A significant example of the storytelling impact is his project Robotics For All, an interactive documentary film that tells the story of two talented young boys, Alexandros and Theodore, who are the youngest members of the first Roma Robotics team in Greece and who managed to overcome the wretchedness of their segregated community by traveling all the way to US for the World Championships of Lego Robotics. The film follows them on their life-changing journey, and is as much about finding their playfulness as kids, as it is about their continuous struggle for education.
With the support from the Fulbright Artist Scholarship, he will be visiting the San Fransisco Film Society to further explore the documentary funding potentials in the U.S. film market as well as the educational capabilities of documentary storytelling. His aim is to master his storytelling skills, develop further the project Robotics For All and initiate a documentary center in Thessaloniki, Greece.
