    "Go back 2,500 years to the wars between ancient Greece (West) and Persia (East).
    The Greco-Persian Wars 2,500 years ago were a clash between two peoples, two cultures,
    two systems of government and two continents. The first clash between East and West.
    A clash that has, sadly, continued all the way to today."

    http://www.celebrategreece.com/products/5-kallisti-most-beautiful

    This newly released documentary artfully covers the bronze age origins of the Greek island of SANTORINI. Today Santorini tuants
    us to identify it with Plato's legendary lost island of ATLANTIS. The island's original name of KALLISTI, meaning "most beautiful", was given to it by the Minoans of Crete. Befitting
    the name Kallisti, this documentary conveys the awesome beauty that was, and is, Santorini.

    The present day excavation of the bronze age city of Akrotiri is producing extraordinary paintings, or frescoes, preserved within multi-storied buildings two-thousand years
    older than those of Pompeii. Similar to Pompeii, Akrotiri was preserved for immortality by the largest volcanic eruption in the last 10,000 years; a blast so large that it
    sank most of the island into the sea. It's global impact was chronicled by the Egyptians, the Chinese and even the writers of the Bible. But, it was Plato who wrote of the
    island over 1200 years after the fact giving birth to the greatest of all legends. Today Santorini is a popular tourist destination in the Aegean Sea and it remains one of
    the largest and most beautiful active volcanoes on earth awaiting to awaken us all.
