By 2010, Greece was in an economic crisis and the society and people were shown to be deeply affected by the country's state.
Abstract: Krisis, is a feature documentary film connected to the Prism GR2011 project, a collective documentation of Greece done with DSLR cameras during 2010-11. It focuses on the economic crisis and how it has affected a wide variety of people and situations in this quiet and usually calm country. The desire was to tell the story of the tormented country through a new type of narrative. Through a process of creative collaboration and documentation, a group of 14 photojournalists and videographers, were mentored, enabling them to make the transition to a multimedia storyteller. 'Krisis' is the synthesis of these different stories into a feature documentary that explores how Greece and the Greeks are handling the crisis. 63 mins.
