Krisis is a cinematic re-enactment of a Facebook discussion among Russian and Ukrainian artists after the tear-down of the Lenin statue in Kiev during the Euromaidan protests of 2013-14.
The debate reveals a society deeply divided by history, politics, and aesthetics.
The desire was to tell the story of the tormented country through a new type of narrative. Through a process of creative collaboration and documentation, a group of 14 photojournalists and videographers, were mentored, enabling them to make the transition to a multimedia storyteller. 'Krisis' is the synthesis of these different stories into a feature documentary that explores how Greece and the Greeks are handling the crisis.
It is a testament to how creativity is the best antidote to the crisis, and that innovation can occur in the darkest of hours.
