synopsis
Between 1939 and 1945, an estimated 40.5 million Europeans were uprooted and displaced... This is the story of 1 of them. "Yia Yia: A Portrait" documents the life and times of "Yia Yia" Mary Vorgia, as told by herself. From a youth spent in the sleepy mountains of Peloponnesus, to her sudden exodus to a land called Manhattan, Yia Yia reflects upon her life's journey, one both familiar and unique. For before she was Yia Yia, or even Mary, she was Maria, one of the millions of mid-20th century Europeans to have had their lives interrupted by the encroaching forces of World War II. What follows is one woman's odyssey, spanning much time and many places, to reclaim her lost innocence, heal an enduring trauma, and grow a family of her own. (English, 20 min.)
