Being Present


Whilst still healing from the wounds caused by the ten-year-long economic disaster, Greece confronted the biggest public health crisis in recent history. Against the backdrop of a disintegrated public health sector, the prominent protagonists managing the pandemic are entangled with the stories of its invisible heroes. Political decisions and behind-the-scenes manipulations are closely observed and juxtaposed with the struggles of the people who bear the brunt of this new crisis. Observing the experience of his homeland over a year, Avgeropoulos manages to capture a universal reality and poses critical questions about the post-Covid era the world is entering.
