WHAT’S HAPPENING IN GREECE?
Gogos, Spyros, Hüseyin, Plumbi, Sokol, Jasvinder, Gourdevr... They are Roma, illegal immigrants, just a few of the vast army of desperados who recycle Greece’s metal just ten minutes from the Acropolis. They don’t live by European norms; they don’t even know the so-called European values. State, middlemen, eco-entrepreneurs and industrialists hush up the mythic wealth their labours produce for others. They unconsciously are the kingpin of a gigantic mechanism of wealth, foundation of the insane world we all live in. The second feature documentary by Karakepelis charts the course of this band of hunter-gatherers in today’s Europe, exploring the backstage of consumerism.
