Yiorgos Panteleakis’s documentary takes a full contact approach to the protests that took place in Athens in late May 2011 against the country’s austerity measures, as well as the violence used by the police while quelling the protests. The series of unpolished scenes includes footage shot not only by the filmmakers but also by the participants themselves. The demonstrations are presented as spontaneous, wild, and uncoordinated events.
