Athens, My City - My'hood

In the overhyped world of smart cities, garden cities and tech cities, five Athenians show us that in the end it's people that make a city.

Director Statement

A city is like a puzzle, its people are all the little pieces, up close it doesn't seem like much, but when you pull back and see the full picture...that's when it all makes sense. A potpourri of 5 different characters from different backgrounds and ethnicities talk about what it means to be part of a wave of social and cultural change in Athens since the economic crisis. This creative short doc takes us beyond the Parthenon and Plaka and into the lives and neighbourhoods of those who are changing the face of Athens figuratively and literally. My aim is to make this short into a feature.
