Colossi of Love

Colossi of Love is the story of the Greek characters known as "kamaki", men who were obsessed with courting foreign tourists using special techniques during the 1970s and 1980s.

In a society where sex with local women was culturally forbidden, "kamaki" became the reason for almost 1,000 mixed marriages on the island of Rhodes.

Issues of Greece at the point of change in terms of both cultural and sexual taboos.
