The Prism

Krisis (Orig.) / 2012 / Greece / 62 min

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 its people in this quiet and calm country at the eastern border of Europe. The desire was to tell the story of the tormented country through a new type of narrative...





“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
