Among the Eucalyptuses

Among the Eucalyptuses

It is deadly quiet on this lazy afternoon. The city seems abandoned, as if a disease has wiped out the population, except for a silent figure sitting on a bench. Old factories and their machinery, warehouses, train lines and shabby buildings in the city of Piraeus, are juxtaposed to ancient statues and moments. Two worlds co-existing and colliding at the same time, a distant past and a fading present. A four-minute poetic meditation on the stillness of time.
