This is a teaser excerpt from our upcoming documentary “The Greek” that follows professional fighter Vaggelis Chatzis.
Greek Reporter has undertaken the task to turn meaningful Greek stories into documentaries and Chatzis’ story was one of the first to film. This young Greek fighter and his daily struggles inside and outside the ring run in parallel with most of the Greeks as they are trying to survive in one of the worst economic periods for Greece. Chatzis, like most Greeks today find strength in their heritage to continue their tough stuggle.
After losing his one arm – and against all odds- Chatzis is still determined to follow his passion for boxing and become one of Greece’s brightest boxers.
The film is produced by the GR team with original music by Greek-American Alexi Thomakos.
