All that Glitters is a short documentary about social realities in the balance between tradition and globalization in the Greek village of Olympos. The film shows different points of view: from the traditional one of the local priest to the economically involved standpoint of the festival’s organizers; from the mothers who still believe in certain values to their daughters who scoff at the idea of staying in that little lost village. The tourists, lucky them, believe the fairytale stage-set and think they are in the place where ‘time stands still’.
