The Arcadian is a breathtaking short film directed by Pano Verino and filmed during a weekend trip he took with his friends, in Arcadia, Peloponnese, Greece. The music used is Lo Fang’s captivating rendition of “You’re The One That I Want”.
The Arcadian is a person who leads and prefers a simple rural life. According to Greek mythology, Arcadia of Peloponnesus was the domain of Pan, a virgin wilderness home to the god of the forest and his court of dryads, nymphs and other spirits of nature. It was one version of paradise, though only in the sense of being the abode of supernatural entities, not an afterlife for deceased mortals.
