Plot
The Agora (Αγορά) was a central area in Ancient Greece city-states. It was a gathering place, an assembly of active citizens, and the City centre for political, economical, athletic, artistic and spiritual life. It was the heart of Democracy. In Modern Greece, the word Agora has lost its initial sense and it has come to denote solely the place and act of commercial transactions. It is a dominant word in the reality experienced today by Greeks, as the country goes through an economical vortex that devours human lives in its path.
Greece, a symbol for the European civilization because of its Ancient heritage, is experiencing conditions in post-war history that no European thought would face again. Homeless people, soup kitchens, unemployment, poverty, an unsettled social situation, violent conflicts and the rise of the extreme-right. The dream of prosperity has turned into a nightmare and the political scene of the last four decades is crumbling.

A feature length project covering four years of Greek economic and human downfall, with the point of view of a long time world documentarist and reporter filming his own country with impartiality, delivering the chronicle of the on progress laboratory of the country’s public economical and social fabric dismembering, meeting with his fellow citizens with humanity and empathy, reflecting their devolution, and addressing economic governance, when accessing the testimony of its national and international key actors and first hand backstage insiders.
