Johnnie Walker has long been a brand that champions progress, and Ode to Lesvos is nothing if not an ode to progress. Partnering with Syrian and Sundance award-winning director, Talal Derki, we went right into the heart of the refugee crisis and told the uplifting story of a few selfless heroes. Three older ladies and a handful of fishermen from a tiny island named Lesvos in Greece, who over the course of a summer received more than 300.000 refugees. As a result of their efforts the villagers were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
