Sotiris Tsafoulias gave an interview and talked about the studies he was about to start, but also the time he worked alongside his father on the ships.
The director was a guest on the show “Studio 4” and initially said: “I was quite young and I didn’t have a conscience. It got to the point where I went to my father’s office one day and while there was an answer from the university in England and they accepted me because of good marks in the second year, I told him that I was thinking of not going to follow the work on the ships.
“We experienced a pretty big storm when we went to dock a ship in Bulgaria. I had an accident. “When we did the repair, because of a blackout, I could have been killed, but I wasn’t.” As he described, a small carelessness of the crew almost led to his death. “They had cut off a piece of the ship to repair it, but due to the blackout, they hadn’t had time to mark it. Everything happened in our effort to collect the tools. Fortunately, I was saved at the last moment”, explained Sotiris Tsafoulias.
