'Na to parei to potami?' is a greek phrase/question that literally means 'Should the river take it?'. This question is used when asking someone to guess something and the other person cannot find the correct answer. In this case the river question is used in order to ask "Should I tell you the answer?". Our question is: How can a seashell be responsible for whatever happens in our film? The answer IS the film and it's literal river at the end that sends us all to the... beginning!
This short animation film was created by a group of 35 children aged 7-13 in three days during the animasyros 5.0 festival. The main theme of this workshop was 'heroes' and the starting point was Tin Tin and his many adventures in faraway places. The creator of Tin Tin, Herge, had never been to these places but experienced them through his character. The children of the workshop created their own characters, heroes, who found themselves in places where none of the children had ever been. "And who is to blame?" Na to parei to potami???
