The cast of Agora: From Democracy to the Market
What is Agora: From Democracy to the Market about?
Greece is experiencing conditions in post-war history that no European thought would face again. Homeless people, soup kitchens, unemployment, poverty, 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. Yorgos Avgeropoulos urgently turns his camera towards his homeland. He records the development of the crisis from its early stage, while tracing its impact on the lives of people. He witnesses popular protests in the streets, the development of solidarity movements as well as the rise of fascism, while at the same time he seeks answers from Greece's most significant political personalities, insiders, analysts and key decision makers from the international political scene.
