Among the 85.000 historical videos uploaded by British Pathé in Youtube, we "fished" one about Crete. The year is 1964 and the big protagonists are the sun, the sea, Minoan civilization... the same things more or less advertized in modern Crete!
What has changed? Apart from the fashion, obviously, we see less cement in Elounta, donkeys in action, women weaving, old style windmills -probably in the plateau of Lassithi- and a nostalgic open air Cretan feast. And the most impressive of all: we found out that, before the hippy invasion, the caves of Matala were used as summer houses by the locals!
A historical gem, A living card postal from the 60s.
(we just love the dance moves in 5.18'')
And many cut scenes here (like silent film):
