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. In addition, The Prism and Krisis are testaments to how creativity is the best antidote to the crisis, and that innovation can occur in the darkest of hours.Written by
Great redux of the human face of the economic crisis in Greece
In 2004 Greece played host to a spectacular summer Olympic games. A few short years later, the country was experiencing economic collapse, widespread public rage and destruction. As events played out on the world stage, social unrest escalated. If economic collapse and default were the symptoms of an inefficient system was the nanny state, corruption, bureaucracy or hubris the cause? In 2011, two friends and 14 multimedia artists embarked on a cross-country journey. They photographed, documented and recorded impressions, images and ideas that the traditional media might have overlooked. Their collective and visually stunning journey includes artists, historians, politicians, students and average citizens. Together, they try to understand the events that have so dramatically transformed life in this storied part of the world. Chris McDonald
