It all starts when a "group of caregivers" of people with Alzheimer's meet to talk about their fears, guilt, bad and good times. Within this group is Eleni. She is a young caregiver who cannot accept that her mother will not remember her. Moments of intense anguish and pain take place and star in her life. But not for long. Because at some point the time of acceptance arrives...

Maria Svoliantopoulou

Maria Svoliantopoulou, 25 years old, was born in Heraklion, Crete and comes from Grevena. She studied Psychology at Staffordshire University and has specialized in the field of mental health. He speaks 2 foreign languages, English and German.
In 2012 she was honored with the Psychology Prize for her theoretical and research course as well as her research thesis on "Mental illness and social exclusion".
Since the age of 17 she has been working voluntarily as a psychologist in organizations dealing with special education, child abuse, childhood cancer, in psychiatric institutions and in the Panhellenic Alzheimer's Society.
Since 2016 she has also been working as a marketing and sales manager for the local olive oil-based cosmetics company Princelia Cosmetics.
In 2015 she presented us with her first amateur film entitled "The Masks That Night in the Morning", which is about mental illness and its stigma. Her goal through this effort was to give strength and reward those who suffer or suffered from some kind of mental illness as well as to exculpate her term.
Proceeding with the initial plan and creating a trilogy to inform and raise public awareness, he creates the second film in a row entitled "To Remind Me". The new film is about Alzheimer's disease, but it is mainly based on the people's caregivers and how they experience this painful process themselves along with the patients. The idea came from her personal experience and through this she wants to present and at the same time reward the struggle of caregivers. Through the role of producer, screenwriter and director, Maria Svoliantopoulou makes another effort to inform the audience and urge them to become familiar with the disease.
Many professionals from Heraklion from various fields responded voluntarily to her call, as well as actors from Heraklion and Athens, such as George Kimoulis, Yiannis Zouganelis, Kostas Apostolakis, Carmen Rougeri, Tania Rokka and Yiannis Tsourounakis.
In December 2019, CNN Greece presented Maria Svoliantopoulou among the people who stood out for their work, contribution and values.
