The filmmaker behind Infinite Liquid 2022 is Stratis Kas, well known in the diving community. Experienced technical diver, explorer, filmmaker and author of the very well received book Close Calls. During many hours of travelling and diving in Greece, Stratis gathered great material which he used to create a 24-minute film.
The production is full of wonderful shots from under the water, but that is not all. The author also took care of the wider context and therefore we get a lot of information about the Greek caves. There are also shots from the surface and comments of people who took part in the filming. The whole made a very good picture, which is certainly worth watching.
For the occasional, or even the habitual, summer visitor to Greece, the country has long been associated with pristine beaches and turquoise seascapes. For the tech diving community, the country embodies a historical playground with countless shipwrecks dating from ancient times to World War II.
But for a small group of local divers, Greece means caves. All kinds of caves: from amazingly decorated sea caves reminiscent of cenotes to pure, untouched, mountain springs, there are caves with big rooms and caves with tight tunnels. So, the question is, could Greece be Europe’s newest cave country?
Stratis Kas is a professional, award-winning photographer and filmmaker. His photographs have been published numerous times in prestigious magazines such as Vogue (Italy, Russia, Greece) and GQ (UK). As an artist he has been exhibited in galleries and shows in London, New York and Paris. He has also collaborated with brands such as Fendi, Christian Dior and Levi’s.
Since 2016, he has led a team of cave filmmakers, Top2bottom, who specialise in adventure filmmaking. In 2017 he completed his first film ‘Amphitrite’, which won a finalist spot at the 2018 Short to the Point film festival.
The project was made possible through the support of the XDEEP Exploration Suport Program.
Undoubtedly, Greece is a country of many still unexplored caves. You will read more about diving in them in the 14th issue of our the DIVERS24 quarterly magazine! The digital version of the magazine is available free of charge, while the printed version you can buy in our online shop.
