Yannis Nikolakopoulos Writer filmmaker


As a writer I have always been fascinated by the emotional power of storytelling. Particularly for children, a well written story can open their desire to learn.

As a father I wanted a way to pass on the depth and complexity of my Greek heritage on to my children in a way that is fun and accessible, so that they can feel connected to a Greek identity.

Sofia and the Grammatakia is a world of characters that opens a child’s imagination to the deep historical memory and a cultural wealth of Greece.

It is the origin story that can give children the emotional connection to  the values, insititutions and ideas that the world lives by today. And I believe that is central to our broader human identity.

I hope you enjoy,
