Greece on the Brink

Transient

This documentary gives an in-depth insight into the profound crisis that Greece is facing today. The country, which is facing the seventh year of a deep recession, is in a state of absolute collapse at all levels: financially, socially and politically. The Greek population has been exposed to a radical change in their lives. Joblessness, homelessness and suicide rates have all hit a sad record high. A small team travelled to Greece and interviewed political activists. The team visited the newspaper cooperative Efimerida ton Syntakton and the occupied former public broadcaster ERT, which is run under workers' control. The documentary covers the change in the political landscape, as the left party of SYRIZA became the main opposition party in the last elections. 108 minutes
