Capitalism & Crisis

After six years of recession, with widespread misery contributing to the rise of a fascist party, the situation in Greece is looking increasingly dark.

This short documentary looks at the current social crisis in Greece, the growth of alternative economies, general strikes, and the rise of the anti-fascist movement in response to violent attacks by the far-right. After six years of recession, the situation in Greece is growing increasingly dark. As the unemployment rate continues to rise and salaries continue to drop, the country has descended into an increasingly unpredictable situation.
