A Film about the People of Greece
Greece is in trouble – says whole Europe. It’s in this situation because Greek people are lazy and careless. Could the situation be this simple? Are nearly 20,000,000 people this stupid?
I live in Hungary, which is often regarded as a savage state by Western European people, sometimes even I think that my country is a savage state. But one thing I’ve learnt living here: any given situation is always more complex than we think.
I believe that politicians don’t define people, and scientists cannot always speak for a whole country. Greece is populated by everyday men and women, only a small percent of them are scientists, politicians and other “smart” people.
In this film there are no scientists, neither politicians; only those who can truly speak for the country because they see the situation as the majority of the population: everyday people, the true experts in my view.
It’s been a year since shooting took place and right now we are in the middle of post production and put the finishing touches on the research.
